Fitzgerald Cosponsors Bill to Counter Chinese Aggression

July 29, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Scott Fitzgerald (WI-05) cosponsored the Countering Communist China Act alongside his colleagues in the Republican Study Committee (RSC). This bill would address the growing threat China poses to U.S. national security and innovation.

“For too long the United States has stood idly by while the Chinese Communist Party expands their strategic influence through the Belt and Road Initiative, steals our intellectual property and technological research, and commits human rights atrocities without repercussion.

“This bill takes concrete steps to counter Chinese influence and aggression, while saving the taxpayers billions of dollars in unnecessary spending. It’s time for the Biden Administration to take off the kids gloves and start backing our words with action,” said Congressman Fitzgerald.
