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.”

A bill that supports the U.S. freight rail industry & closes loopholes that give foreign state-owned enterprises a foothold has strong bipartisan support. Thanks to the new co-sponsors of the Freight RAILCAR Act! @RepDanKildee @RepRonKind @TonyGonzales4TX

"SAFE TRAINS Act" Aims to Protect Economic and National Security by Safeguarding the U.S. Freight Rail Industry via @HSTodayMag #RailSecurity

Fact: It's been 14 weeks since @MBTA took all of its new @CRRCMACorp railcars out of service because of the dangerous train derailment that resulted in a fire on the tracks. #RailSecurity @SEPTA @cta @MTA @Metra @gometro

We applaud the leadership of @SenCantwell @SenatorWicker @tammybaldwin @JohnCornyn @JerryMoran for prioritizing the nation's freight rail industry and infrastructure in the Senate's 2021 surface transportation bill. Our national and economic security is at stake. #SAFETRAINSAct

Investing in America's infrastructure will create millions of jobs, many of them good-paying union jobs in manufacturing, and help the United States compete with countries like China on the global stage.
