HWM Trade Subcommittee Hearing Question Section 321 and $800 De Minimis

Fri, December 03, 2021 5:07 PM | Anonymous

Washington, D.C.-

The House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee held a hearing on "Supporting U.S. Workers, Businesses, and the Environment in the Face of Unfair Chinese Trade Practices"

The issue that caught a lot of attention was Chairman Blumenauer highlighting the testimony of Kimberly Glas, President & CEO, National Council of Textile Organizations, who recommended that Congress "Close the Section 321 De Minimis Tariff Loophole."  See page 11 of testimony.

Discussion of this issue appears at the following time points in the hearing: 15:42, 28:20 and 49:00.

EMTC believes now is the time for the e-commerce industry to make its voice heard in Congress.  After nearly two-years of lockdowns, small businesses are trying to reinvent their companies using the e-commerce supply chain.  Americans have built their e-commerce businesses based on legislation passed by Congress, and changing the rules will have a devastating impact.    

EMTC speaks to Congressional staff on a continuous basis on issues important to the e-commerce industry.  Contact EMTC's CEO, Marianne Rowden, at mrowden@emtc.org, if you will be negatively affected by elimination of Section 321 and De Minimis.
