Most of Pennsylvania's congressional delegation voted in favor of a bill that may very well lead to a nationwide ban of TikTok (if its China-based owner doesn't sell the app).

We have a complete list of which representatives voted in favor it is posted below.

The bill — H. R. 7521 — passed in the House of Representatives by a majority of 365 in favor to 65 against it. You can read the full text of the bill by clicking here, by the way.

It calls for a nationwide ban of TikTok if its China-based owner ByteDance doesn't sell the app citing security concerns. The U.S. government has raised concerns that ByteDance may be held to the Chinese government, which means they may be able to access the data of TikTok's US customers at any time.

More than 150 million Americans are believed to use the app, so of course, this is a pretty big deal.

What's Next for the TikTok Ban?

The bill faces a much more uncertain future now that it moves on to the United States Senate.

Ultimately, however, if the bill were to be enacted it would give ByteDance five months to sell TikTok. If they don’t, their app will be removed from the app stores for Google, Apple, and others in the United States.

It is unclear how quickly the bill could move to the Senate floor. That's especially true in an election year because banning TikTok won't make many senators popular with their constituents.

However,  President Joe Biden says he would sign the bill if it makes it to his desk, CNN reports.
