Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) applauded on Friday the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) recent ruling that China must rescind anti-dumping duties countervailing duties on American automobile exports.

Portman and Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), who previously urged the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) to investigate the tariffs, praised the WTO’s decision.
