Cannot support HR 3532
The question taken without context appears ludicrous.
The question when taken together with the background summary provided is too vague and confusing.
The bill itself seems to be a muddle. I suggest it be rewritten more clearly as two separate bills
First, it is implied that the technology is proprietary and integral to our national interests. Meaning what exactly?
Next, we are told other countries have that technology and are willing to sell it to the Chinese. So if other countries have this technology and are willing to sell it, what would be the purpose of this bill? Again, what is the real subject of the bill?
Is someone alleging that foreign countries are selling proprietary & sensitive American Technology to the Chinese? Then stopping and preventing the sale should be the focus of the efforts. We need competent Secretaries of Commerce, Defense, Homeland Security, and State, instead of Team Trump Bobbleheads. At this point what role has the CIA been given?
If the Chinese are actually in America stealing America’s Security Technology, then efforts should be to improve the security of the technology from start to finish. This is not a matter of legislation. Where’s American Security? Where’s the FBI?
As for China or any other foreign country like Russia sanctioning reverse engineering American developed technology that is what trade agreements are for. Best to dump Trump and his corrupt team of morons ASAP and put a team in place that can understand and navigate the intricacies of trade in the 21st Century. Again, We need competent Secretaries of Commerce, Defense, Homeland Security, and State, instead of Team Trump’s Corrupt and Incompetent Bobbleheads.
