A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers on Thursday asked Alphabet Inc’s Google if it will re-enter the Chinese search engine market and if it would comply with China’s internet censorship policies upon its return. Sixteen members of the U.S. House of Representatives, including liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans, said in a letter they had “serious concerns” about the potential step and asked Google if it would agree to restrict certain words, terms or events in China. Reuters reported last month Google planned to launch a version of its search engine in China that will block some websites and search terms, two sources said.
