"Today I directed the chairs and members of our relevant committees to start drafting a legislative package to outcompete China and create new American jobs," Mr Schumer said. The new legislation, he said, must achieve three goals. They should enhance American competitiveness with China by investing in US innovation, American workers and American manufacturing; invest in strategic partners and alliances: NATO, Southeast Asia and India; and expose, curb, and end once and for all China's predatory practices which have hurt so many American jobs, Mr Schumer said. The legislation will have as its centrepiece a bicameral, bipartisan bill, the Endless Frontiers Act, which Mr Schumer introduced last year with Senator Todd Young, Indian-American Congressman Ro Khanna and Senator Mike Gallagh in the House.
