    MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, I come from southeast Michigan, which is home of America's domestic auto industry where we build absolutely the finest quality cars and trucks on Earth. We know our products can compete against anyone anywhere in the world. All we ask for is a level playing field.



    {time} 1200 Unfortunately, American car companies have suffered decades of economic devastation due to unfair currency manipulation practices from overseas competitors, like Japan, China, and South Korea.

    That is why I support this bill, Mr. Speaker. After decades of doing nothing--decades of doing nothing--this bill [[Page H9293]] contains very strong measures to protect American products from nations that manipulate their currency.

    Now, there will be a three-part test that will identify countries that manipulate their currency and, once identified, they must be reported to Congress, and action must be taken.

    I certainly appreciate the help of the House leadership as well as the Committee on Ways and Means, because these provisions will level the playing field, Mr. Speaker.

    All of us want free trade, but it must be fair trade.
