This article reports on the request made by U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham and Charles Schumer for a floor vote on their pending bill, S-295, to impose punitive tariff on Chinese imported goods. This initiative was made in response to China's refusal to value its currency, the yuan. They have vowed to impose a tariff on Chinese imports if U.S. President George W. Bush's administration failed to secure Chinese cooperation in revaluing its currency.
