WASHINGTON — Ten senators from textile-producing states urged Bush administration officials Tuesday to deny a request from Bangladesh to exceed its 2002 limits on cotton trouser imports.
The letter sent to Bush cabinet members underscores the dilemma facing White House officials. If Bangladesh isn’t given a special exception to ship more trousers this year or allowed to borrow from its 2003 quota, then several major retailers, including Sears, Wal-Mart and Target, won’t get their Bangladeshi cotton trousers in time for fall and holiday sales.
