Washington, D.C. - Today, the Countering CCP Drones Act which Congresswoman Elise Stefanik introduced with Select Committee on the CCP Chairman Mike Gallagher advanced through committee following a legislative hearing on the bill. This legislation would add Chinese drone company Da-Jiang Innovations (DJI) to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Covered List, meaning that DJI technologies would be prohibited from operating on U.S. communications infrastructure.

“The advancement of my legislation the Countering CCP Drones Act is critical for American national security. Communist Chinese drones present a serious national security risk to our country and it is time for Congress to act. Communist Chinese companies that engage in espionage activities and collect sensitive data from American citizens and entities should not be allowed to operate in the United States and this legislation is the first step to prohibiting Chinese drone companies from freely operating on America’s communications infrastructure,” said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.
