BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. HILL of Arkansas. Madam Speaker, I rise today to commend the work of Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and Foreign Affairs Committee Ranking Member Mike McCaul for their hard work on the China Task Force.

After months of meetings and investigations, the task force released 82 key findings and 430 associated recommendations. That number of recommendations demonstrates the important work that we have to do as a Congress to address China's refusal to play by the rules as a global power.

What was most disappointing, Madam Speaker, was that Speaker Pelosi refused to participate in this effort.

Many of the recommendations, and legislation linked with the recommendations, are bipartisan. I have heard it directly from my Democratic colleagues with concerns about China's actions in a variety of areas, from human rights, intellectual property theft, and military incursions in the South and East China Seas, just to name a few.

Tackling China as an issue should be a bipartisan one, and I hope my Democratic colleagues will come to the table in the coming months to collaborate with Republicans on the proper strategy to counter China's decision to threaten the global system.
