Reid Statement on Passage of China Currency Bill

Washington, D.C. — Nevada Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement after the Senate approved a bipartisan bill that will pressure China to stop manipulating its currency:

“For too long China has been using underhanded tactics to manipulate its currency at the expense of American workers and businesses. They deserve a level playing field. This bipartisan bill levels that playing field, and could support up to 1.6 million American jobs.

“I commend my Republican colleagues who joined with Democrats to pass this important bill. I join my colleague, Senator Graham, in calling on the House to take up this bill and pass it quickly.”
