CFIUS Reform: Proposed Legislation to Expand National Security Reviews

(FIRMMA, § 2(4), H.R. 4311, 115th Cong., Nov. 8, 2017.) This bill addresses recent calls to reform the process in which the US conducts national security reviews over investments and acquisitions in US business by foreign persons.
