WASHINGTON (June 10, 2014) — The U.S. House of Representatives voted May 29 to approve an appropriations bill that includes a provision ordering the Commerce Department to investigate imports of brake products containing asbestos.
The Commerce, Science, Justice and Related Agencies appropriations package for fiscal year 2015 passed 321-87, according to the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) which, along with the Brake Manufacturers Council and the Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association, supported the brake products provision. The groups called its passage a major victory for their members.
Commerce’s International Trade Administration must complete its investigation and submit its report to Congress within 120 days, according to the provision.
