Rep. Tony Gonzales Introduces Legislation in Support of Taiwan

U.S. Representative Tony Gonzales (R-Texas), a member of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus, introduced legislation that would require the U.S. Department of the Treasury to cease the U.S.-China Tax Treaty within 30 days of a Presidential determination that China has launched an armed attack on Taiwan. 

“Ensuring the safety and security of our partners in the Indo-Pacific region is essential to our nation’s economic and national security endeavors. This legislation sends a clear message to the Chinese Communist Party—if you invade Taiwan, severe consequences will follow,” said Rep. Tony Gonzales. “I look forward to working alongside my colleagues to get this vital national security legislation across the finish line.”

"To safeguard our national security and that of our allies, we must ensure severe economic consequences if the People’s Republic of China moves on Taiwan,” said Rep. Don Davis. “We must deter unprovoked aggression because a threat to democracy anywhere is a threat to democracy right here at home.”

U.S. Representatives Don Davis (D-N.C.), Victoria Spartz (R-Ind.), and Andre Carson (D-Ind.) are original cosponsors of the bill. This legislation has also been introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas).
