The House Financial Services Committee on Tuesday advanced a raft of China-related sanctions bills, a sign of increasing hawkishness in the Republican-controlled chamber amid strained relations between Washington and Beijing.

The approval of the bills moves them toward a likely House floor vote. The bipartisan nature of these bills suggests they could have a shot of passing the Senate and being signed by President Joe Biden later in the year, depending on the state of relations with China.
