WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. French Hill (AR-02), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, today supported multiple pieces of legislation that combat the threat of the Chinese Communist Party during committee markup.
“Today, I was proud to support multiple bills that passed the House Foreign Affairs Committee which counter the aggression of the Chinese Communist Party. It is critical that the United States has an effective strategy to defend our homeland and our global commerce and security interests against the CCP's military, technology, and economic actions that threaten the region and the international order. The United States, along with our allies around the world, must be engaged in the system of multilateral institutions as we confront this geopolitical challenge head on.”
