The ITC doesn't immediately publish an explanation of its vote, but instead issues a single sentence that it has "made a negative determination."
The result is that the tariff investigation on truck and bus tires from China is over, and no tariffs will be assessed.
After it's initial one-sentence announcement this morning, the ITC has provided one more detail on its decision. The five-member commission voted 2-3.
Commissioners Rhonda Schmidtlein and Irving Williamson voted in the affirmative (which was a vote to impose the tariffs,) and commissioners David Johanson, Meredith Broadbent and F. Scott Kieff voted in the negative.
A sixth member of the commission, Dean Pinkert, did not participate in the case. Pinkert also recused himself from the separate investigation studying tariffs on off-the-road tires earlier this year.
Weeks after an ITC vote, the commission provides insight into its decision. That report will be available by March 15, 2017, here.
