House of Representatives passes Indo-Pacific bill to deter China

The House of Representatives passed the Indo-Pacific Security Supplement bill by a bipartisan vote of 385-34 plus one vote present: Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib.

Here's what the package includes:

-$8.1 billion to counter China's actions in the Indo-Pacific region.

-$3.3 billion to develop submarine infrastructure.

-$2 billion in foreign military funding to Taiwan and other key allies.

-$1.9 billion to replenish defense items and services provided to Taiwan and regional partners.

The Senate bill contained very similar provisions to strengthen security in the region./ CNA
