Chairs Rodgers and Latta Announce Subcommittee Markup on Securing American Communications Networks from Foreign Adversaries

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 markup on legislation to secure American communications networks from foreign adversaries.

“Our communications networks are an integral part of our lives, businesses, economy, and national security, which is why we cannot afford to jeopardize their security by continuing to rely on technology from foreign adversaries. Homes, schools, hospitals, our financial system, and the military are all at risk as long as equipment sourced from our adversaries remains part of our communications infrastructure. We look forward to marking up several legislative solutions that will safeguard and cement America's leadership in this area for generations to come.”
