On Friday, October 18, the Hoover Institution’s Ray and Louise Knowles Senior Fellow F. Scott Kieff will be sworn in as a member of the International Trade Commission at the George Washington University Law School. Scott was confirmed by the Senate with unanimous consent in August, and was nominated by President Obama in September, as covered by our previous article.
According to the US government website, “the International Trade Commission is a quasi-judicial body that investigates whether or not, and to what extent, an unfair trade practice harms U.S. businesses. When unfair trade practices are found to harm U.S. businesses, the Commission may implement corrective measures. The Commission also provides the President and Congress impartial information on international trade to inform trade policy.”
