US parliamentarians prepare Taiwan law to counter China
By Patricia Gingerli
WashingtonJune 16 – Democratic and Republican members of the US House of Representatives will introduce a law this week to bolster US support for Taiwan, as part of the US Congress’ campaign to take a hard line in its relations with China.
Representatives Amy Bera and Steve Chabot, Democratic and Republican leaders of the Asia Subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, will introduce the “Taiwan Peace and Stability Law,” a measure to “support the diplomatic, economic and physical space” of the autonomous island.
“I hope we can pass something between the two parties in the House of Representatives,” Pera said in a telephone interview. “I think this is an area in which I hope we can speak with one voice.”
Taiwan’s Foreign Ministry appreciated the show of support and said it would pay close attention to the progress of the bill.
Bera dijo que espera que gran parte de la Ley de Taiwán se incluya finalmente en la “Ley Eagle”, un amplio proyecto de ley sobre las relaciones con China que el representante Greg Meeks, presidente de la Comisión de Asuntos Exteriores de la Cámara, present Last month.
On June 8, the Senate approved the United States Competition and Innovation Act by 68 votes to 32 bipartisan, or use, a bill worth about $250 billion to bolster the country’s ability to compete with China, including a massive boost for semiconductors and communications equipment.
