Last week, Rubio brought back the “Taxpayers and Savers Protection (TSP) Act” with the support of Scott and U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH, and Todd Young, R-Ind. The bill will ensure the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board (FRTIB) will not send federal retirement savings to China. Rubio first introduced the bill at the end of last year.
The bill would let the U.S. State Department deny visas to those who engaged in espionage and stole American intellectual property.
On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., gave a speech on the Senate floor describing the need for strong, American industrial policy in Congress’s ongoing efforts to confront the historic challenge posed by the Chinese Communist Party.
“TikTok is an immediate security threat that no has place on government devices,” U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said. “This should not be a partisan issue and I’m glad to see my colleagues in the Senate act together to address Beijing’s covert data collection campaign. Banning TikTok from government devices is a good first step towards taking Chinese espionage seriously.”
"We do not have time for a so-called ‘China Bill’ that is nothing but a collection of half-measures and studies. Instead, an actually meaningful China bill is what we need.

“The bill would impose sanctions on senior officials of the Chinese Communist Party, specifically four CCP leaders widely known to be responsible for the violations of human rights and freedoms of individuals living in Hong Kong, Macau, Tibet, and Xinjiang. Additionally, the bill would follow U.S. policy of sanctioning CCP officials who participate in or lead campaigns of disinformation and political warfare against the U.S., steal U.S. intellectual property, and commit severe human rights abuses against the people of China,” Cammack’s office noted.
On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said he was supporting the “Protecting Military Installations and Ranges Act” from U.S. Send. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
