House Passes Taiwan legislation

The US House passed legislation that is important for Taiwan (here). Rep. Royce's announcement:
Today, the House of Representatives passed with overwhelming bipartisan support H.R. 3470, the Taiwan Relations Act Affirmation and Naval Vessel Transfer Act of 2014, introduced by Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

The legislation reaffirms U.S. commitment to the Taiwan Relations Act and strengthens ties with key U.S. security partners by transferring ships that meet shared maritime security requirements. Specifically, the legislation authorizes the transfer by sale of four Oliver Hazard Perry class frigates to Taiwan.

Ma and his cronies still have to approve any purchase of hardware... Do love the invitation to join TPP though... a finger in Matong's eye.
