WASHINGTON — The House Textile Caucus is mobilizing an effort to convince President Bush to start monitoring apparel imports from China for the rest of this year.
The caucus, comprising 80 textile state lawmakers, has sent a letter, a copy of which was obtained by WWD, to members seeking their support to pressure Bush to commit to scrutinizing Chinese imports. China is the world’s biggest apparel manufacturing country and the largest source of apparel for the U.S., exporting $32.1 billion worth of apparel and textiles to America in the year ended May 31.
