Congressman Joe Donnelly sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor asking for a vote on Senate-passed, bipartisan legislation that would counteract the Chinese government’s refusal to fairly value their currency. 

“My question for those who continue to stand in the way of responding to China’s currency manipulation is: what else do you need to hear before you finally stand up for American businesses and workers?” asked Donnelly.  “I have been a longtime advocate of leveling the playing field for Hoosier businesses, and making sure Chinese goods aren’t on permanent sale is one way to do this.  I sent a letter to House Republican leadership today because I think it’s time for the House to do what the Senate did last night: take bipartisan action in support of the American economy.”

The Senate passed The Currency Exchange Rate Oversight Reform Act of 2011, S. 1619, by a bipartisan vote of 63 to 35 yesterday evening.  Donnelly sent a letter to Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor this morning asking for a vote in the House on this bill, citing bipartisan support for this effort in the past.  Donnelly is a co-sponsor of similar legislation in the House, The Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act, H.R. 639, which has 225 cosponsors from both sides of the aisle.  A similar bill pased the House last year with support from both Republicans and Democrats, 348 to 79.
