                Secretary of Labor[, and] the United States Trade 
                Representative

                On July 9, 2009, the United States International Trade 
                Commission(USITC) submitted a report to me that 
                contained a determination pursuant to its investigation 
                under section 421 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended 
                (the ``Trade Act''), that certain passenger vehicle and 
                light truck tires from the People's Republic of China 
                (China) are being imported into the United States in 
                such increased quantities or under such conditions as 
                to cause or threaten to cause market disruption to the 
                domestic producers of like or directly competitive 
                products.

                By proclamation I have issued today (the 
                ``proclamation''), and after considering all relevant 
                aspects of the investigation, I have proclaimed actions 
                of the type described in section 421(a) of the Trade 
                Act. I have determined that the most appropriate action 
                is application of an additional duty on imports of 
                certain passenger vehicle and light truck tires from 
                China, as defined in paragraph 4 of the proclamation. I 
                have also determined that such action shall be in 
                effect for a period of 3 years.

                Specifically, I have proclaimed an additional duty on 
                imports of the products described in paragraph 4 of the 
                proclamation, which for the first year shall be in the 
                amount of 35 percent ad valorem above the column 1 
                general rate of duty. For the second year, the 
                additional duty shall be in the amount of 30 percent ad 
                valorem above the column 1 general rate of duty, and in 
                the third year, the additional duty shall be in the 
                amount of 25 percent ad valorem above the column 1 
                general rate of duty.

                In order to assist workers, firms, and their 
                communities that have been or are affected by the 
                market disruption, I direct the Secretary of Commerce 
                and the Secretary of Labor to expedite consideration of 
                any Trade Adjustment Assistance applications received 
                from domestic passenger vehicle and light truck tire 
                producers, their workers, or communities and to provide 
                such other requested assistance or relief as they deem 
                appropriate, consistent with their statutory mandates.
