Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Morgan Luttrell (R-TX) and RSC Chairman Kevin Hern (OK-01) today introduced the Anti-Foreign Adversary Collaboration Resolution, which would prohibit Members of Congress from serving on boards affiliated with our foreign adversaries, such as China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran. 
“China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran pose the greatest threats facing the United States’ national security. If we continue to turn a blind eye to the nefarious actions our foreign adversaries, it will be devastating for our country,” said Congressman Luttrell. “Countering our opponents is one of the most pressing issues we will undertake this Congress. The legislation I introduced today emphasizes the importance of a long-term focus on countering, curbing, and outcompeting foreign adversaries across the globe."
“America’s adversaries are using every tool at their disposal to undermine American authority on the world stage. Their influence reaches from academia to pop culture to corporate board rooms and social media,” said RSC Chairman Kevin Hern. “We cannot allow nations who wish us harm to exert undue influence on our government, which is why I’m proud to join Morgan on this important bill. Members of Congress must be completely free and independent of any influence from America’s enemies." 
The Anti-Foreign Adversary Collaboration Resolution would prohibit Members, officers, and employees of the House from serving on the board of directors of any entity which receives funding from, or is affiliated with, or owned, or controlled by China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, or Cuba.
