The U.S. Department of Commerce on Monday proposed rule changes that would impose new restrictions on certain exports to China, according to a government filing.

The department also amended a rule that expands controls for military buyers in China.

The rule changes were posted for public inspection and will be formally published in the Federal Register on Tuesday.
