Last week, U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., brought back a resolution which he first introduced in 2019. Rubio is the main co-sponsor.
The senators urged Biden to include at least $1.5 billion each for two funds established by Congress to encourage the adoption of Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) equipment, which would allow additional vendors to enter the 5G market and compete with manufacturers like Huawei, which is heavily subsidized by the Chinese government.
Rubio and U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Oreg., backed including a provision “that requires the Secretary of State to determine, within 90 days after enactment, whether the persecution of Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and members of other Muslim minority groups in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) constitutes atrocities." Earlier in the year, Rubio and U.S. Rep. James McGovern, D-Mass., included similar language in their “Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act.”
