McLernon: CFIUS Reform ‘Exemplifies Thoughtful Leadership’

June 26, 2018

WASHINGTON – Nancy McLernon, president and CEO of the Organization for International Investment (OFII), issued the following statement in support of House passage of the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA):  

“Today’s bipartisan action exemplifies thoughtful leadership, where policymakers worked together to safeguard national security while also preserving America’s economic competitiveness. I commend Members of Congress for keeping America’s investment review system squarely focused on national security so that our nation’s adversaries cannot exploit our economic openness.”
