A bipartisan group of senators recommended the Departments of Homeland Security and Energy enact a ban on using Huawei products in the United States' energy infrastructure.




As part of last year's annual defense bill, Huawei has already been banned from being used by government employees and contractors.



WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of senators sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Energy Secretary Rick Perry on Monday cautioning against the use of products by Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, as well as suggesting an outright ban on their products as it relates to US energy infrastructure.
The letter to key officials in President Donald Trump's administration is yet another example of lawmakers on Capitol Hill taking a harsher stance toward Huawei, which Congress banned from being used in various government activities in last year's defense bill.
