McMorris Rodgers Praises Bipartisan Bills to Win the 5G Race

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Republican Leader on the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce, praised the House’s bipartisan passage of four bills today to help America win the race to 5G.

“U.S. leadership in 5G is critical for our global competitiveness. In order to beat China in a global economy and ensure America remains the best place in the world to innovate, we must win the 5G race,” said McMorris Rodgers. “At the same time it’s crucial we ensure the infrastructure our service providers use for our next-generation networks is secure. Equipment from companies supported by the Chinese government, like Huawei and ZTE, comes with significant risks. The Trump administration has prioritized American competitiveness and our national security in 5G, and these bills will help support their efforts.”
