H.R. 5841: Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018

Passed 400/2

Rep. Gabbard [D-HI2]: Yea

Rep. Hanabusa [D-HI1]: Yea

Since 1975, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has been tasked with ensuring that America’s foreign investments don’t harm its national security. An interagency committee, it’s led by the Treasury Secretary.

Although it’s only able to produce recommendations to the president instead of issuing its own policies, presidents of both parties through the decades have often heeded its calls. President Trump blocked a Chinese company’s attempted purchase of an Oregon-based semiconductor company in 2017, and also blocked a Singapore company’s attempted purchase of a California-based telecommunications equipment company in March — both after the CFIUS recommended he do so.
