Luttrell Votes to Protect Americans from CCP Influence

Congressman Morgan Luttrell (R-TX) today voted in support of the Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act. This bipartisan legislation, which passed out of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce by a vote of 50-0, would protect Americans and prevent foreign adversaries, such as China, Iran, North Korea, or Russia, from targeting, surveilling, and manipulating the American people through online applications. While the bill does not outright ban TikTok, it requires that TikTok separate itself from control by the Chinese Communist Party to continue operating in the United States.

“Cybersecurity has become a central issue of our national security, as our adversaries seek to gain any advantage they can over America, and applications like TikTok that are controlled by the CCP are maliciously exploiting Americans for their gain,” said Congressman Luttrell. “This bipartisan legislation passed in the House today will strengthen our national security and prevent Americans from being targeted and surveilled by foreign adversaries.”
