Rothfus Votes to Strengthen U.S. National Security
WASHINGTON – Representative Keith Rothfus (PA-12) issued this statement after he supported the House passage of H.R. 5841, the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018. This legislation strengthens how the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) reviews national security risks of potential foreign investments.
“With increasing global threats, it is critical that the United States make every effort to strengthen our national security,” said Congressman Rothfus. “This includes ensuring any potential foreign investments are thoroughly vetted and do not jeopardize our safety. I am proud to support the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018. It will fortify our current review system and prevent the flow of American military-capable technologies to hostile foreign governments including China.”
