Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul issued the following statement ahead of visits by numerous U.S. Chip CEOs to Washington, D.C. with the aim of advocating for weaker export controls.

“While I support the administration’s export controls on advanced semiconductors implemented on October 7th, it is vital the U.S. update these measures to curtail the Chinese Communist Party’s use of state-of-the-art AI technology for military purposes or violations of human rights. The White House must put national security ahead of commercial interests.”
