What They're Saying

U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

"Further postponement of the Section 232 investigation will invite a growing deluge of steel imports into the U.S. and cause even greater damage to the U.S. steel sector.”

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer

"The sheer scale of [China’s] coordinated efforts to develop their economy…and to distort markets in China and throughout the word is a threat to the world trading system that is unprecedented.”

Dr. James Mulvenon, General Manager, Special Programs Division, SOS International

"...the number of examples where China has successfully avoided U.S. regulatory regimes to prevent technology transfer harmful U.S. national security are increasing. The Chinese are learning our system, identifying its gaps and weaknesses, and finding new ways to exploit American technology to their advantage."

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX)

"By exploiting gaps in the existing CFIUS review process, potential adversaries, such as China, have been effectively degrading our country’s military technological edge by acquiring, and otherwise investing in, U.S. companies."

James Lewis, Senior Vice President, Center for Strategic and International Studies

“China’s goal is to end its dependence on foreign technology and overtake the U.S., as it has overtaken other nations.”

What did @TransportGOP's T&I Committee Ranking Member have to say about @CRRCMACorp's work for @SEPTA? In a letter to the @FTA_DOT IG, he and his colleagues urged an investigation into CRRC's compliance with #BuyAmerica requirements.

Everyone has heard of the landmark Infrastructure and Investment Jobs Act. But did you know about the #SafeTrainsAct, passed as part of #IIJA? It will bring more security to our freight rail industry, once implemented. Learn more #RailSecurity

In #rail news: @TransportDems call for IG investigation into @CRRCMACorp contract for @SEPTA over #BuyAmerica concerns #RailSecurity #CRRC


What does a Chinese state-owned railcar manufacturer have over its market competitors? About $1.3 billion in direct state subsidies from 2015-2020. As @OxfordEconomics reports: That's known as an unfair advantage. #RailSecurity #China @USTradeRep

Across the U.S., communities are seeing the benefits of #IIJA. With the coming implementation of IIJA's Section 22425, the SAFE TRAINS Act, more #RailSecurity is to come. @USDOTFRA #RailSafetyWeek
