WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats have launched a new legislative effort aimed at taking on China. Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer on Wednesday said they will propose new legislation to try and prevent U.S. technology and capital from going to Chinese companies.

Schumer provided no firm timeline for considering the bill.
