Washington, D.C. -- The Office of the United States Trade Representative has released official transcripts for the testimony made by flooring industry leaders lobbying for and against proposed 25% tariffs on imported Chinese goods, including flooring, tile and stone.

The stakes are high for all businesses involved, and the Section 301 Committee said it will carefully consider the testimony and the written comments before making a recommendation to the trade representative.

A complete list of participants who testified during the Section 301 Tariffs Hearing Panel can be found here.

Many flooring industry panel participants gave testimony on August 21. You can read that testimony beginning page 282 here.
