Posey Applauds Senate Passage of His, Scott's Anti-China Legislation

Today, Congressman Posey (R-Rockledge) applauded the Senate's passage of his and Senator Rick Scott's (R-Florida) historic bipartisan legislation to support American solar manufacturers and workers and to hold the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) accountable for breaking our trade laws.  This legislation passed the House with bipartisan support last week and now heads to the President's desk for signature. 
“Every day that this rule is in effect the CCP gets closer to dominating the solar market, making it harder for Americans to compete. Today’s bipartisan vote in the Senate scores another big win for American solar manufacturers and workers while holding China accountable for violating our trade laws. I applaud Senator Rick Scott and supporters in the Senate for taking the lead on this bipartisan issue and standing up for American competitiveness," said Congressman Bill Posey.
“Communist China’s solar panel manufacturing is based on slave and child labor, government subsidies and trade abuses. Today, in a bipartisan vote, the U.S. Senate affirmed that the United States will never tolerate a hostile takeover of our industries and will always stand against slave and child labor. Today’s vote is good for American jobs, protects U.S. national security and holds accountable those who commit horrific human rights abuses. When you break American trade laws and use slave labor, you pay the price. I want to thank all my colleagues who supported this CRA and Congressman Bill Posey for his hard work getting it passed in the House of Representatives. Now, this CRA heads to the president’s desk, and I urge President Biden to sign it and stand up to Communist China," said Senator Rick Scott.
