Solar tariffs. On April 28 the House of Representatives approved H.J.Res. 39, which would reverse the Biden administration’s two-year suspension of antidumping and countervailing duties on solar cells and modules from Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam determined to be circumventing the AD/CV duty orders on such goods from China. The White House has said President Biden would veto the bill if it reaches his desk, and the House vote of 221-202 indicates that there is not enough support for the measure to override a veto.

China. H.R. 2993 (introduced April 28 by Rep. Banks, R-Ind.) would counter the military-civil fusion strategy of the Chinese Communist Party and prevent U.S. contributions to the development of dual-use technology in China.

Food labels. S. 1289 (introduced April 26 by Sen. Blumenthal, D-Conn.) and H.R. 2901 (introduced April 26 by Rep. Pallone, D-N.J.) would amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to strengthen requirements related to nutrient information on food labels.

Western hemisphere. S. 1325 (introduced April 26 by Sen. Risch, R-Idaho) would establish a partnership with nations in the Western Hemisphere to promote economic competitiveness, democratic governance, and security.

Boycotts. H.R. 3016 (introduced April 28 by Rep. Lawler, R-N.Y.) would apply the provisions of the Anti-Boycott Act of 2018 to international governmental organizations.
