Media Contact 202-225-5021

Washington, D.C. – China Task Force Chairman Michael McCaul (TX-10), along with other members of the task force, joined House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) today to introduce the China Task Force Act
 
“The malign behavior of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) poses a generational threat that demands urgent action,” stated Chairman McCaul. “We can no longer stand back as the CCP ramps up their military aggression, weaponizes the supply chain, and brazenly attacks the democratic values that underpin American society and global prosperity. For more than forty years, we have tried to bring them into the family of nations as a responsible partner and only recently have we begun to change course and take on the CCP’s hostile ideology and actions. I am pleased Leader McCarthy has introduced a compilation of bills recommended by the China Task Force that will help guide our foreign policy regarding the CCP for years to come and we should pass this bill as soon as possible this year.”

The China Task Force Act is a comprehensive legislative blueprint that includes 137 bills and other provisions that were recommended by the China Task Force. Two-thirds of these measures have bipartisan support and more than a third have already passed the House or the Senate. Some of the pieces of legislation in the China Task Force Act include:

  • Key provisions from the bipartisan CHIPS for America Act (H.R. 7178) contained in the NDAA
  • H.R. 7937, the bipartisan Countering CCP Malign Influence Act
  • H.R. 3763, the bipartisan House passed Promoting U.S. International Leadership in 5G Act
  • H.R. 2002, the House passed bipartisan Taiwan Assurance Act
  • H.R. 7939, the United Nations Transparency and Accountability Act
