H.R. 737: Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act of 2019

Passed 310/107

Rep. Case [D-HI1]: Yea

Rep. Gabbard [D-HI2]: Not Voting

Although the changeover’s terms originally required China to pledge a generally hands-off approach to Hong Kong, certainly much more so than the heavy governmental control China applies to the rest of their nation ...
