        Request for Cosponsor(s)

Dear Colleague, 

Please join me as an original cosponsor to a resolution expressing the sense of the House that the People’s Republic of China should be held accountable for its handling of COVID-19. 

The first reported case of COVID-19 was as early as November 17, 2019. Meanwhile the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission did not inform the World Health Organization (WHO) of the outbreak until December 31, 2019. 

The resolution highlights the global outbreak of Coronavirus being a direct result of the People’s Republic of China’s long and appalling record of human rights abuses, including its suppression of the freedom of expression, as well as its aggressive domestic
and global propaganda campaign. 

China must be held accountable for this behavior. To this end, the resolution also encourages the United States and other countries to permanently withhold payments on debts owed to China in amounts equal to the public costs incurred by such countries. 

To cosponsor this legislation, please contact my Legislative Director, Sarah Miller, at
