The Taiwan Relations Act's Enduring Legacy on Capitol Hill

Recorded on June 9, 2009

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

On March 24, the United States House of Representatives approved a resolution reaffirming "its unwavering commitment to the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA) as the cornerstone of relations between the United States and Taiwan."  Nothing is permanent on Capitol Hill, but bi-partisan commitment to the Taiwan Relations Act is as close as it comes.  Join us as we explore the depth of that commitment and its future with Rep Joe Wilson (R-SC) and Congressional staff members past and present.
