Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) has introduced a bill that would authorize the United States to use military force if China were to invade Taiwan.

In a news release on July 29, Yoho said the legislation (pdf), named the “Taiwan Invasion Prevention Act,” addresses a number of “aggressive actions” taken by the Chinese communist regime towards Taiwan. It also comes in response to “escalating tensions” caused by Beijing in Hong Kong, the South China Sea, and on the Sino-Indian border.

“Given these provocations, it has become clear that the Chinese Communist Party is rapidly moving to realize its territorial ambitions without regard for international condemnation or backlash,” the release states.
