U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo reiterated her pledge that the agency would move as quickly as possible to advance a trade investigation that is disrupting the domestic solar industry.

“This case has my attention, we are focused on it, and we’re doing everything we can to move it as swiftly as we can in the confines of the law,” Raimondo said in a Friday interview with Bloomberg Television, a day after calling the issue an “urgent” matter. “Any place that we can accelerate within the bounds of the law, we are doing that.”
