FOR

SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 20

(By Senators Unger, Love, Jenkins, Hunter and McCabe)

[Originating in the Committee on the Judiciary]


Urging the United States Congress pass legislation to protect the American public from toxic and hazardous imports.

Whereas, Toxic and hazardous imports such as tires, fake drugs, auto parts, contaminated food and pet food, toothpaste and lead-laden baby products and children's toys are threatening the health and safety of the American public; and
Whereas, Toxic imports are the undesirable fruit of trading with much lesser developed countries which have no incentive to raise safety, labor or environmental standards; and
Whereas, Questionable international agreements have resulted in the importation of products manufactured with lowered standards, which threaten all citizens and workers and the environment in the United States; and
Whereas, It is now time to alter course and insist that international trade agreements raise world standards for product safety, labor and the environment; and
Whereas, We are paying too high a price for inexpensive imports from countries such as China; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Legislature hereby urges the United States Congress to pass legislation to protect the American public from toxic and hazardous imports; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the Senate is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to the members of the West Virginia delegation to the United States Congress.
