US approves new sanctions bill to punish China over new Hong Kong security law

The United States Senate has approved a final version of legislation that would punish China for imposing a new security law on Hong Kong, a move by China that aims to destroy democratic freedoms and government accountability in Hong Kong.

The legislation termed the Hong Kong Autonomy Act would impose sanctions on businesses and individuals that help China restrict Hong Kong's autonomy.

The Senate initially passed the bill last week, according to Sen. Pat Toomey, a Pennsylvania Republican, and Sen. Chris Van Hollen, a Maryland Democrat, who authored the legislation, but on Thursday July 1, it was approved by unanimous consent and it will now go to President Donald Trump's desk for signing.
