Congressman Valadao Co-Sponsors Bill to Prohibit China from Purchasing U.S. Farmland
Congressman David G. Valadao (CA-22) joined Congressman Dan Newhouse (WA-04) to introduce the Prohibition of Agricultural Land for the People’s Republic of China Act. Chinese ownership of domestic agricultural land has increased from $81 million in 2010 to $1.8 billion in 2020, according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The large-scale state backing for these investments indicates a broader strategy from Beijing to control U.S. farmland.
