Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) was selected by Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to serve on the China Task Force, a select committee of House Members that will work together in addressing the threats posed by the Communist Party of China.

As Leader McCarthy announced this morning, this joint task force was designed a year ago and more on that can be found here.

On being named to this select committee, Congressman Kinzinger released the following statement:

“For years, I have worked in Congress to push for greater oversight on our relations with China. I’ve worked to strengthen our reviews of proposed investments by China and urged leaders to confront their improper and illegal trading practices that hurt our farmers and agriculture economy. I’ve pushed for sanctions on bad actors in China who have threatened our communication networks and worked to strengthen our cyber capabilities as well as our space assets. I’ve been vocal about the need to hold the Chinese government accountable for violations on human rights, and their misinformation campaign surrounding the coronavirus and subsequent withholding of information that has cost thousands of lives.

“For too long, the United States has allowed the Communist Party of China to encroach on our very way of life and it’s time we take these threats to task. I am grateful to Leader McCarthy for this appointment and look forward to working in a bipartisan manner to address the various challenges we face in our global security.”
