New legislation under consideration (H.R.6919, Advancing Quantum Computing Act) requests that the Secretary of Commerce conduct a comprehensive study on quantum computing to assess the benefits of the technology for American competitiveness as well as identify supply chain risks.

Introduced by Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) on May 19, the bill emphasizes American leadership and the integrity of American supply chains in the face of competition from other nations, such as China.

In a statement Congressman Griffith’s office cited the coronavirus pandemic as underscoring the need to secure domestic supply chains.
