Senate Is Poised To Approve A Major Science Funding Bill To Compete With China

Anna Ashton of the US-China Business Council has been tracking proposals aimed at China and the perceived challenge it poses to America. She said the last Congress considered more than 500 of them and the current Congress, which started in January, is on track to blow past that record. "​Some of it is a genuine desire to respond to that in a way that will be effective and ensure US competitiveness in the future and also US national security. But I think it's also been incredibly politicized," she said.
