Under this provision, the Secretary of Commerce is mandated to submit to the appropriate congressional committees a report every 180 days on any subsidies provided by countries exporting softwood lumber or softwood lumber products to the United States, including stumpage subsidies. Below is a link to the latest report issued pursuant to this requirement.
