WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01), Congressmen Raja Krishnamoorthi (IL-08), Jake LaTurner (KS-02), Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05), and Congresswomen Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-02) and Elissa Slotkin (MI-07) introduced bipartisan legislation to close a loophole frequently exploited by the Chinese Communist Party to hide its role in lobbying efforts.
“Attempts by foreign governments - including Russia and the Chinese Communist Party – to influence our lawmaking process poses a credible threat to our national security. If foreign adversaries are seeking to lobby our government officials, the United States Congress must be aware,” said Congressman Fitzpatrick. “This bipartisan, bicameral legislation will close a dangerous gap in our laws that is frequently exploited by the CCP, and further protect our governing process.”
