WASHINGTON, June 29 — US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee Republicans said yesterday they opposed Democratic-led legislation intended to boost competitiveness with China and push Beijing on human rights, meaning the panel will likely advance the bill this week with only Democratic support.

A spokesperson for Representative Michael McCaul, the top committee Republican, said he opposed the “Ensuring American Global Leadership and Engagement Act,” or Eagle Act, which the committee will consider tomorrow.

The desire for a hard line in dealings with China is one of the few truly bipartisan sentiments in the deeply divided US Congress, which is narrowly controlled by President Joe Biden’s fellow Democrats.

However, the two parties disagree on how best to deal with China. For example, Republicans object to provisions in the Eagle Act that would authorise funding for climate initiatives.

But Republicans also said they felt the Eagle Act calls for too many studies and would be a missed opportunity to take meaningful action like tightening control of technology exports and regulating access to some types of sensitive personal data, such as Americans’ health information.

“It’s largely just a messaging bill,” a Republican aide said.

The Eagle Act was introduced in May by Democratic Foreign Affairs Chairman Gregory Meeks.

The Senate on June 8 passed by a strong bipartisan 68-32 majority its own sweeping China bill, the “US Innovation and Competition Act,” or USICA, which authorises about US$190 billion (RM788 billion) for provisions to strengthen US technology and research, and approved US$54 billion to increase US production and research into semiconductors and telecommunications equipment. — Reuters
