Vice Ranking Member Guest Named as China Legislation Conferee
WASHINGTON, DC— This week, Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy announced that Rep. Michael Guest (R-MS), Vice Ranking Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, will serve as a conferee on the Committee that will work to produce legislation that is worthy of Congress’ support to boost America’s competitiveness with China.
“China poses the greatest 50-year threat to the homeland,” said Vice Ranking Member Guest. “Due to the significant entanglements between our two countries, the homeland security mission has never been more important. As a result, many of our most long-standing concerns, such as travel, trade, and supply chain resilience must be strategically addressed. I am proud to serve on this committee and contribute critical solutions to ensure U.S. competitiveness during this pivotal time.”
“Countering the Chinese Communist threat is the single most pressing issue we can undertake in this Congress. We cannot continue to choose inaction or a weak approach if we want to secure a revitalization of our domestic manufacturing and bring those jobs back to the United States. This Congress cannot bend or bow to China’s lobbying efforts. We need strong voices in this process who will put American interests above all else. I am confident these members will never waver in their commitment to only advance legislation that will help our national security, protect our economic prosperity, and that will hold the CCP accountable,” said Leader McCarthy.
