Bill Info

Senate: S.811

House: H.R.3084

  • Sponsor:
    Rep. Ami Bera and
    Rep. Steve Chabot
    (Introduced 05/11/2021)
  • Cosponsors: (5)
  • Committees: House – Foreign Affairs
  • Latest Action: House – 05/11/2021 Read twice and referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs.
  • Status: Introduced

What does this bill do?

If passed, a two-year fellowship program will be launched to send 10 U.S. federal government employees each year to Taiwan to work with their counterparts in Taiwan government offices most relevant to their home agencies. Moreover, these participants will also receive Mandarin Chinese language training during their first year in Taiwan.

Why is it important?

We will have more U.S. officials who love and know Taiwan more after spending two years in the country. As a result, they can become a major force to support stronger US-Taiwan relations in the United States government in the future.
