US Lawmakers Move To Reevaluate US Policy Towards China

WASHINGTON — A congressional reassessment of American policy towards China is expected to get underway in earnest early next month.

In a 365-65 vote, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution Tuesday creating a special Select Committee on China. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has tapped Republican Representative Mike Gallagher to chair the committee’s work.

“A lot of people are interested. I spoke to the Republican caucus this morning and a lot of people have expressed interest. I’m optimistic that we’re going to have a pretty serious group of members with a broad range of experience that’s relevant to the issues we’re facing right now,” said Gallagher in an interview with VOA Mandarin.

Gallagher told VOA the committee expects to hold its first hearing in early to mid-February and will be comprised of a bipartisan group of lawmakers.
