Hill Calls for Federal Ban on Chinese Land Purchases


Central Washington Republican Dan Newhouse (R-WA) continues his efforts to limit Chinese land purchases, introducing the ‘No American Land for Communist China Act’’.

This bill would prohibit any agent of the government of the PRC,, or any business with respect to which the Gov- ernment of the PRC owns 25 per- cent or more of the equity interests of the business, from purchasing land adjacent to federal land in the U.S, including Indian Country.

For the past several years Mr. Newhouse and others have promoted legislation to prohibit the purchase of U.S. agricultural land by non-resident aliens, foreign businesses, or any agent, trustee, or fiduciary associated with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Russia, North Korea, or Iran.
