SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 20

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


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

Whereas, Toxic imports such as tires, fake drugs, auto parts, contaminated food and pet food, toothpaste and lead-laden baby bibs are threatening the health and safety of the American public; and
Whereas, Toxic imports are the rotten fruit of trading with much lesser developed countries which have no incentive to raise safety, labor or environmental standards; and
Whereas, Bad trade deals have lowered standards and harmed workers and the environment in the United States; and
Whereas, The time is now to change course and insist that trade deals bring world standards up everywhere for product safety, labor and the environment; and
Whereas, We are paying too high a price for cheap 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 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.
