As the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has pointed out, America's auto parts sector is a key pillar of U.S. industry. Unfortunately, more than 400,000 jobs in the U.S. auto supply chain have been lost since 2000. One major problem is China's persistent violations of World Trade Organization (WTO) rules, and another 1.6 million U.S. jobs are at risk unless China's illegal trading practices are curtailed.

Complicating the issue is Japan's recent move to devalue its currency in an effort to boost exports.

In Indiana, the auto parts sector constitutes nearly 5% of all employment. And so, the issue of subsidized auto parts imports matters a great deal.
