TikTok, the immensely popular social media app whose China-based parent company has given rise to concerns about data security and foreign influence, is once again in Congress’s crosshairs.

The Republican-controlled House will soon vote on a bill requiring TikTok either be divested from ByteDance, its Beijing-based owner, or face a nationwide ban. The House Committee on Energy and Commerce unanimously passed the measure last Thursday, and House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) has said he will bring it to a vote as early as Wednesday.
