Florida Senator Marco Rubio Forces Democrats & Biden To Pass His Uyghur Forced Labor Protection Act

The House on Tuesday passed a bill that would punish China for its treatment of the country’s Uyghur population following a bicameral agreement on the legislation. The measure passed by voice vote, indicating unanimous support. The legislation now heads to the Senate, which is expected to send the bill to the White House for President Joe Biden’s signature. The House voted 428-1 last week to pass a version of the bill written by Jim McGovern, D-Mass. The Senate unanimously passed a related measure, sponsored by Marco Rubio, R-Fla., in July.
