Washington, DC—Today, Congressman John Curtis (R-UT), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the China Task Force, issued the following statement on the China Task Force Act, which he introduced this week alongside House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), China Task Force Chairman and House Committee on Foreign Affairs Lead Republican Michael McCaul (R-TX) and members of the China Task Force:
“I am pleased to join with Leader McCarthy and China Task Force Chairman McCaul to introduce this package outlining our strategy to take on the Chinese Communist Party,” said Curtis. “This comprehensive legislation includes several of my bills recommended in the China Task Force report released at the end of September. The Chinese Communist Party poses a grave threat and I urge my Democratic colleagues to join us in protecting not just our own country, but China’s neighbors, its own minority communities and our allies around the globe.”
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.
Curtis bills in this legislative package include:
- Foreign Advanced Technology Surveillance Act
- Protecting U.S. Businesses Abroad Act
- Li Wenliang Global Public Health Accountability Act
- Taiwan Symbols of Sovereignty Act
- Hong Kong Safe Harbor Act.
