WASHINGTON (Reuters) -U.S. lawmakers expect to boost the country’s ability to push back against China if a Senate panel approves sweeping legislation on Wednesday as expected, even as they voiced a need to do far more to counter Beijing.

[L1N2M113C]The bill is part of a fast-track effort announced in February by Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to pass a wide range of legislation to counter China. A separate bill calling for $100 billion in government spending over five years on basic and advanced technology research and science in the face of competition from China, was introduced on Wednesday.

However, like many provisions of the bill, this clause could be changed as it moves through the committee and full Senate. “I am confident that this effort has the necessary support to be overwhelmingly approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee next week and the full Senate shortly thereafter,” Menendez said in a statement. The measure is part of a fast-track effort announced in February by Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to pass legislation to counter China. The Senate Commerce Committee will hold a hearing on April 14 on its bipartisan measure, the “Endless Frontier Act,” to bolster the U.S. semiconductor industry.

The big blue vans that the New Jersey Health Department is rolling out to deliver Covid-19 vaccines to the residents who have been the hardest to reach. Vaccination vans similar to these are also being used in Connecticut, California, New Mexico, South Carolina and Virginia to get shots into the arms of hard-to-reach populations. The problem is especially acute in Hudson County, "which is the most diverse county in the state," Hudson County spokesman Jim Kennelly said. Currently, Hudson County has the lowest vaccination rate of any county in the state with 16 doses administered per 100 people. I am deeply concerned that Hudson County residents do not have equitable access to covid-19 vaccinations.”

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - It was a bold opening salvo from the incoming administration of President Joe Biden: an immigration bill that would open a path to citizenship for roughly 11 million people living in the country illegally. The Biden administration released a summary of the bill on Wednesday, but the text - which is expected to be hundreds of pages - has not been made public. Slideshow ( 2 images )Democrats control the House of Representatives, but by a narrower margin than in the previous Congress. Mitch McConnell, the Senate’s top Republican, is seeking assurances that the Senate will retain the filibuster, according to his office. Biden’s immigration push comes after Trump, a Republican, spent four years cracking down on legal and illegal immigration.

Senator Richard Blumenthal on Tuesday called on the heads of Facebook and Twitter for information on steps the social media firms are taking to prevent the spread of misinformation ahead of the runoff U.S. Senate elections in Georgia. Social media firms have been under scrutiny over how they police rapidly spreading false information and election-related abuses of their platforms. Georgia’s two competitive contests in January will determine which party gets majority control of the Senate. The letters, signed by four Democratic Senators and Bernie Sanders, sought information about the content moderation practices, civic integrity policies and improvements that the companies will have in place for the Georgia runoff election. Senator Bob Menendez also sent a letter to YouTube, urging the video platform to remove content that spread misinformation on election results, sow public discord and fuel civil unrest.

Mayorkas will be the first Latino and first immigrant to head the Department of Homeland Security, if confirmed by the Senate. Much of Trump’s immigration policy was the work of his adviser Stephen Miller, who cited and promoted white nationalist beliefs in emails leaked to the Southern Poverty Law Center last year. This summer, the General Accounting Office found that Chad Wolf, acting secretary of DHS, was not legally qualified to hold his job. Mayorkas became DHS deputy secretary in 2013, after Obama had revised his deportation policy and authorized DACA. Mayorkas went through the Senate confirmation process when he was nominated for DHS deputy secretary and also to head Citizenship and Immigration Services.
