The article reports that the Consuming Industries Trade Action Coalition has formed a Byrd Amendment Working Group that seeks to end payments of public funds to private companies, and has already met with members of the U.S. Congress to cite alleged abuses of Byrd Amendment disbursements. In March 2005, the European Union (EU) and the Canadian government announced that U.S. products would be subject to retaliatory tariffs beginning May 1, 2005. The EU has since imposed a 15 percent duty on various types of paper, clothing, fabrics, footwear and machinery, amounting to tariffs worth about $28 million.
