Washington, D.C. -Congressman Denver Riggleman delivered an address on the House floor this morning that sent a strong message of disapproval to China and one of support to American consumers. Congressman Riggleman offered a motion to recommit on H.R. 4863, the United States Export Finance Agency Act of 2019.
