Review - HR 7589 Introduced – ROUTERS Act

Earlier this month, Rep Latta (R,OH) introduced HR 7589, the Removing Our Unsecure Technologies to Ensure Reliability and Security (ROUTERS) Act. The bill would require the Department of Commerce to conduct a study on the national security risks of routers and modems manufactured in China. No new funding is authorized by the legislation.

Moving Forward

The House Energy and Commerce Committee took up this bill (along with 27 others) this morning. There are no results posted to the hearing web site and it does not look like any amendments were offered. I suspect that the bill was ordered reported favorably by a significantly bipartisan vote.
