Walmart’s international trade settlement is about inching closer to becoming a national law.
In a bill that passed the House of Representatives on Wednesday, the Senate passed a companion bill that would make the law the nation’s first to require that companies like Walmart pay a fee to be included in international trade negotiations.
The new legislation will be sent to President Donald Trump’s desk for his signature.
“The goal is to bring transparency to the international trade system,” said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.
“We need to know who is paying what and what is going to happen to them.”
Under the bill, companies would be required to disclose information about the fees they pay, the reasons they pay them, the amount of the fee and any other information they have about them, like where they source their goods.
Under the original legislation, only foreign governments could impose fees on American companies, so the bill requires companies to tell the government how much they are paying.
But now the Trump administration is trying to pass a bill to require every country to impose fees in order to enter the international marketplace.
“This is the first step toward making our national trade system a global marketplace,” Murray said.
“It will provide transparency and accountability to all parties to the trade system and also provide an important way to protect American jobs and companies.”
The legislation, which passed the Senate in December, allows the government to collect fees from companies that trade with the U.S. but does not specify how much.
The fee amounts are calculated based on the average market price of goods and services that are shipped to the U, according to a draft version of the legislation obtained by The Washington Post.
It also includes a cap on how much a company can charge for each transaction.
The bill requires that the fee be collected by the U’s Commerce Department, which is required to file a report every year with the Senate and the House.
The bill, however, does not include a fee cap.
Instead, the government would be given discretion to impose the fee based on a variety of factors, including the size of the transaction and the cost of goods or services, the trade balance, and whether the company is moving to a new location.
The government also could impose a fee on imports, which would be applied to the cost and value of goods.
The bill also provides for a temporary fee that would last for three years, though the government could impose an additional fee on certain imported goods or require that goods be labeled.
The measure would also provide the government with discretion to establish additional fees.
Under the new legislation, companies will have to pay $2,500 per transaction, which they can use to purchase goods from other countries.
They will also be required, for each shipment, to pay a one-time fee of $50 for each goods shipped to a foreign country.
The government could levy a fee of up to $3,000 on any merchandise sent to a U.N. agency.
The new bill also includes the first ever federal minimum wage for foreign workers, which will be set at $15 per hour.
The $15 wage would be phased in from 2021 and would be indexed to inflation.
The Senate bill would also require a federal minimum price on goods shipped overseas.
Under the House bill, the minimum price is set at the amount that a company pays to the Commerce Department for the goods.
The legislation also provides a pathway for companies to be required by the administration to submit information to the government about whether they are moving to new locations and, if so, where they are sourcing goods from.
If the government finds that a foreign company is not moving to locations that are competitive, it will be required that the company submit the details to the administration within 30 days of the beginning of the new year.
Under the legislation, the U will also have the power to take enforcement actions against companies that do not submit information.
“This will allow the government, when necessary, to take action against companies who do not comply with the new rules,” Murray told reporters.
The House bill will go to the Senate floor for a vote on Thursday.
