Arrow McCaul, 36 House Republicans Introduce Bill to Support Taiwan’s Defense

McCaul, 36 House Republicans Introduce Bill to Support Taiwan’s Defense
By: Foreign Affairs Committee - Press Release 09-28-22

Re: Media Contact 202-225-5021

Washington, D.C. – Today, House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican and Chairman of the China Task Force Michael McCaul, joined by 36 House Republican colleagues, introduced the Taiwan Policy Act. This legislation will strengthen Taiwan’s defense and deter the aggression of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) by:

* Establishing a comprehensive set of tools to increase Taiwan’s military capabilities to deter and defeat a CCP attack.

* Modernizing U.S. policy towards Taiwan

* Increasing the United States’ strategic clarity towards a CCP invasion

* Strengthening U.S.-Taiwan bilateral relations, and

* Supporting Taiwan internationally.

Similar legislation was recently approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“Taiwan is a critical national security partner for the United States whose democracy is under an unprecedented level of threat from the CCP,” said Lead Republican McCaul. “Now is the time to arm our ally – before an invasion occurs, not after. I’m proud to introduce this important legislation with 36 colleagues to help improve Taiwan’s defense immediately. Deterrence is key to stopping the CCP from provoking a conflict that would seriously harm U.S. national security.”

Original co-sponsors include Rep. Steve Chabot (OH-01), Rep. Joe Wilson (SC-02), Rep. Jim Banks (IN-03), Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (PA-14), Rep. Mike Gallagher (WI-08), Rep. Tim Burchett (TN-02), Rep.

Andy Barr (KY-06), Rep. Darrell Issa (CA-50), Rep. Young Kim (CA-39), Rep. Scott DesJarlais (TN-04), Rep. Daniel Meuser (PA-09), Rep. Buddy Carter (GA-01), Rep. Steve Womack (AR-03), Rep.

Re: Summary of report:

Personal note: I'm shocked that steps were taken or at least acknowledged
in Taiwan's behalf.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
