Washington’s consensus on China rarely unites US lawmakers, research finds

In an interview with SupChina, a New-York based China-focused publication, Rory Murphy, vice-president of government affairs for the US-China Business Council, quoted figures from the organization’s Congressional Legislative Tracker. “From 2001 to 2017, there was a lot of consistency in the types of bills, the number of bills related to China that were introduced – around 200, 250 per year, give or take. “Last Congress – that went from 2019 to 2020 – the number of China-related measures was 639," he said.
