(Washington DC—January 12, 2022) The US House of Representatives agreed to establish a new committee against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Bipartisan in nature, the new “Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party” will deliberate how to address issues involving China.

Speaker Kevin McCarthy introduced and sponsored this new committee as he and the US Congress take a firmer stance against the Communist regime. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) will chair the 16-member committee, accompanied by seven Republicans and five Democrats. Despite a plethora of polarizing issues within the United States, the House passed the bill easily in a 365-65 vote.

According to the proposed legislation, the committee’s primary purpose “shall be to investigate and submit policy recommendations on Chinese Communist Party’s economic, technological, and security progress and its competition with the United States.” The group will compile data andresearch regarding the CCP, but it will not produce bills or consider them.

Other commissions and committees exist regarding China, including the Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC). However, this new group stands alone in some regards, especially because of its name.

Bob Fu, President of ChinaAid, commented: “What’s encouraging about this commission is that they are actively trying to focus on the CCP itself. It is not necessarily the nation of China causing international turmoil— it is the political power behind that nation committing countless atrocities.”

Both major political parties show a willingness to combat China’s growing influence and long list of human rights violations. Not only are lawmakers considering banning TikTok, they already restricted forced labor goods from China’s Xinjiang region.
