ICYMI: Rep. Green’s Bill Guards against the CCP’s Malign Use of Technology 

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) doesn’t just use advanced technology to spy on the United States and other countries; it uses it to oppress its own people. The U.S. should play no part in this. That’s why Republicans are finding creative solutions to keep our technological advances out of the hands of Beijing. 

In Case You Missed It, via Fox News, Rep. Green’s China Technology Transfer Control Act will protect both Americans and the Chinese people from the CCP’s malign use of technology.

"Despite the historical importance of Tiananmen Square, most people in China do not even know the massacre occurred," Green said. "This is because the CCP scrubbed these events from its heavily censored internet and has kept it out of books and out of school. Using its advanced technology, the CCP has erased its own history."

"This regime steals American intellectual property and then undermines our national security, oppresses its own people, and threatens global stability," he added. "My legislation will keep the CCP from getting access to our sensitive technology."

Green’s bill is the China Technology Transfer Control Act, which is aimed at imposing new limits on U.S. technology exports to China in order to ensure the U.S. maintains its competitive edge, and to keep Beijing from using advanced systems against its own population. "We must ensure we aren’t giving the CCP the tools to harm our nation or its own people," he said when he introduced the bill in mid-April.

His bill seeks to impose new export restrictions on technology used to create AI systems and other technology related to robotics, biotech, computing and internet-related services. Export restraints on those goods would be imposed when it would aid China’s military, harm U.S. national security, or allow China to carry out "violations of human rights or religious liberties" against its own people.
