Congressional legislation has been introduced to protect rail and bus manufacturing from Chinese threats. The Transit Infrastructure Vehicle Security Act would prevent federal transit funds from being used by transit agencies to procure Chinese rail assets and ensure transit agencies develop and execute a cybersecurity plan.
