Prohibits any U.S. department or agency from entering into any contract with any Chinese entity for the procurement of goods or services until the People's Republic of China signs the Agreement on Government Procurement as provided for in the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. Defines "Chinese entity" as any entity located in the People's Republic of China, the majority of which is owned or controlled by the Chinese government or by Chinese nationals.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.


No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
