DeFazio: On balanced budget amendment, buck Dem. leaders


Oregon Rep. Peter DeFazio is urging his colleagues to buck Democratic leadership and vote in favor of the balanced budget amendment that’s headed for a vote in the House at the end of this week. “I believe our leadership is making a strategic mistake asking Democrats who support a balanced budget amendment to make a partisan stand against it,” DeFazio wrote in a letter circulating among his colleagues on Capitol Hill. “I believe the American electorate has rejected the extremist positions of the right, but if we outright reject a bipartisan compromise, then Democrats ...

DeFazio Backs Oregon Hardwood Plywood Manufacturers' Trade Petition Against China
Organizing a bipartisan letter of support for the petition   WASHINGTON, DC--U.S. Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-Springfield) threw his support behind efforts by American hardwood plywood manufacturers to rein in unfair and illegal subsidies of imported plywood from China. The petition, led by four hardwood plywood manufacturers from Southwest Oregon, documents the continued use of illegal subsidies to dump artificially cheap Chinese hardwood plywood in American markets and requests the Department of Commerce and U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) take action. “American manufacturers can’t compete when the deck is unfairly stacked against them. The Department of Commerce and the ITC need to fully investigate and challenge China’s unfair and illegal trade practices. We cannot afford to allow China to get away with manipulative trade practices that hurt American companies and cost us jobs. I strongly urge Commerce and the ITC to level the playing field,” said DeFazio. 
DeFazio to AG Holder: Lack of Progress on Gas Price Investigation is 'Intolerable'
New report shows market manipulation by oil companies during summer gas price spikes   WASHINGTON, DC – In a terse letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) called the lack of progress on an investigation into high West Coast gas prices “intolerable”. He urged AG Holder to review and immediately act on a recent report by Oregon-based McCullough Research which confirmed “normal market factors of supply and demand do not sufficiently explain recent [increases in] West Coast gasoline prices”. “Back in the spring, when Oregonians were paying through the nose at the pump, I wrote to the so-called Gas Price Fraud Working Group calling for an investigation.  Nothing happened.  I wrote to the president and raised the issue of market manipulation by California refineries.  Nothing.  It’s time for the Department of Justice to step up and do what they are supposed to do: crack down on, or at least investigate, illegal energy market activity,” said D
Oregon Delegation Applauds Decision to Investigate China's Illegal Plywood Subsidies
  WASHINGTON, DC-- Oregon's congressional delegation applauded the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) for finding that there is a “reasonable indication” that the U.S. hardwood plywood manufacturing industry has been substantially injured by Chinese subsidized plywood sold in the U.S. at less than fair value. The U.S. Department of Commerce will continue to investigate Chinese hardwood plywood imports and make preliminary determinations on potential Chinese trade violations in December 2012 and March 2013. In early November, U.S. Representatives Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.), Greg Walden (R-Ore.), Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.), Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.); and U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) urged USITC to give full and fair consideration to the antidumping and countervailing duty (AD/CVD) petitions filed by the Coalition for Fair Trade of Hardwood Plywood (CFTHP). “The AD/CVD petitions filed by the Coalition for Fair Tra
