One China Committee had sent a first batch of letters to twenty senators and two representatives. It also sent a letter to Ms. Therese Shiheed disagreeing with her view on disagreement with Taiwan's independence not equal to opposition to Taiwan's independence." and urging her to understand the historical, legal status of Taiwan. In response to our letter, Senator Diana Feinstein of California wrote on December 17:
