APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- A federal commission will hear arguments next month from a Wisconsin congressman and others who say Chinese paper-making companies are engaging in unfair competition.
Democrat Steve Kagen says he'll testify at the International Trade Commission hearing on behalf of hometown paper maker Appleton.
The U.S. Commerce Department imposed antidumping subsidies on China following a 2006 complaint but the trade commission overturned the decision. It says American companies haven't proven the imports harmed the industry.
The Oct. 2 hearing is to reconsider that 2007 decision.
A spokesman for Congressman Tom Petri (PEE'-treye) says the Fond du Lac Republican also may testify. Petri's district is home to the NewPage Corp. mill that closed this week in Kimberly.
