Apr 4, 2024

More than 2 of every 3 states are looking to, or have established, laws to limit or prevent companies and individuals from other countries with hostile relations with the U.S. from owning our land in 2024.

South Dakota has already signed bills to stop China and other nations from buying farmland in the state. South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem called China “an enemy” during a March hearing with the House Committee on Agriculture. “They are buying up our entire food supply chain. And when America can’t feed itself and we rely on another country to feed us, it becomes a national security issue,” Noem noted, Newsmax reported Wednesday.

Other lawmakers are focusing their criticisms on the Treasury Department’s Committee on Foreign Investment (CFIUS) in the U.S. “The CFIUS process today is largely a rubber stamp. … It is broken very similar to the challenges we have with the federal government that is just not functioning,” Texas Republican state Sen. Tan Parker said. The purpose of CFIUS is to set up regulatory processes to prevent purchases that could pose a national security threat.

“For years, U.S. intelligence has warned us about the threats our foreign adversaries — particularly China — pose by acquiring our real estate and critical technology, but the federal government has not sufficiently addressed this problem,” said Arkansas GOP Attorney General Tim Griffin.” (LEARN MORE: GOP Targets Chinese Military Aggression With New Bill)
