Introduced in Senate (10/08/1998)
Trade Fairness Act of 1998 - Amends the Trade Act of 1974 to revise certain factors the International Trade Commission (ITC) must consider when investigating to determine whether an article is being imported into the United States in such increased quantities as to be a substantial cause of serious injury, or threat thereof, to the domestic industry producing an article like or directly competitive with the imported article. Repeals the requirement that such injury be substantial.
Prohibits the ITC, when making such determinations, from attributing to imports injury caused by other factors.
