Washington, D.C. — Today, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) released the following statement on the Commerce Department’s updated rules, further restricting artificial intelligence semiconductor chip exports to China.

“AI chips are at the heart of U.S. national security. These rules move the ball forward to cut off Chairman’s Xi’s access to chips that can supercharge weapons and state surveillance. Continued vigilance is now required to prevent circumvention and limit workarounds.”
