Earlier this year, Ways and Means Committee Chair Dave Camp requested that the U.S. International Trade Commission prepare a study covering changes to auto sector provisions in the Korea trade deal agreed upon during December 2010 supplemental negotiations. The USITC was slated to release this study to Camp yesterday. Now, Camp must decide if it will be made public. It will be critical to review both the USITC's findings and methodology. We urge Camp to make the study public, rather than release selective quotes from it.
What the USITC concludes will be very interesting. So, we've prepared a preview of the study. You can read it here.
