Covington’s Veroneau Advises U.S. House Judiciary Committee to Apply Section 211 Equally

March 3, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC, March 3, 2010 — John Veroneau, the former Deputy U.S. Trade Representative and USTR General Counsel, testified today before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee on international treaty obligations related to Section 211 of the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 1999. Mr. Veroneau’s testimony focused on steps the United States needs to take to comply with a 2002 World Trade Organization (WTO) ruling.

Mr. Veroneau, a partner and vice-chair in Covington & Burling LLP’s international trade practice group, advised that Congress could and should comply with the WTO ruling by amending Section 211 to apply equally to U.S. and non-U.S. nationals.
