Washington D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chair Bob Latta (R-OH) announced a legislative hearing titled “Securing American Communications Networks from Foreign Adversaries.”

“Our communications networks are an integral part of our lives, businesses, economy, and national security. As we’ve grown increasingly connected and more reliant on technology, these networks have become a target for adversaries and bad actors. To remain competitive and secure, the U.S. must ensure our communications and technological infrastructure is protected against adversaries, in particular the Chinese Communist Party," said Chairs Rodgers and Latta. "We look forward to discussing legislative solutions that will safeguard and cement America's leadership in this area for generations to come.”
