A bipartisan group of lawmakers is seeking to expand the federal government’s power in order to ban TikTok and other foreign-owned entities from operating in the United States.
Sens. Mark Warner (D-Va.) and John Thune (R-S.D.) are co-sponsoring legislation that would increase the Commerce Department’s power to take action against tech companies that are owned by six adversarial foreign nations.
