Merkley Statement on China Currency Vote

Washington, DC – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley released the following statement after the passage of the China currency bill.

“The Chinese manipulation of their currency makes American exports more expensive and Chinese imports cheaper, greatly distorting international trade, and destroying American manufacturing jobs. This is unacceptable and cannot be ignored. The passage of this bipartisan bill is a step to creating a more level playing field for American companies and workers.”
