The article focuses on petitions filed on behalf of trade groups to slow the impact of Chinese imports. The safeguard petitions are being filed with the U.S. government under George W. Bush Administration on nearly $2 billion in U.S. textiles and apparel imports, covering 15 of 91 categories scheduled to have quotas removed from January 1. A six-member coalition of trade associations and a labor union announced the filings with the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements, a U.S. government interagency group that includes the Commerce, State and Treasury departments.
