National Review;4/22/2002, Vol. 54 Issue 7, p26
This article focuses on Ernest Hollings, the chairman of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee. South Carolina's Ernest Hollings is a proud protectionist and a steadfast ally of the trial lawyers. His candor lets him say things that his colleagues do not. He has voted against many free-trade deals that have come before the U.S. Congress. Hollings is also clearly a protectionist by conviction. In addition to voting against the interests of the technology sector, Hollings considers manufacturing far more vital to the country's economy.
