Foreign direct investment is critical to the U.S. economy, but our nation’s security is our primary responsibility.  Our goal is to establish a thorough process to review transactions without unnecessarily restricting the flow of foreign investment while at the same time establishing a clear line of accountability.  This Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) reform legislation strikes that critical balance, and I am pleased to join with Chairman Dodd (D-Conn.) in moving it forward.
