Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (R-IA-02) joined Representatives Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21), Rick Crawford (R-AR-01), Mike Flood (R-NE-01), and Mark Pocan (D-WI-02) in sending a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), requesting information on their failures to conduct proper oversight of the foreign acquisition of U.S. agricultural land. Read the full letter here.
“While the Communist Chinese Party (CCP) has increased their takeover of American land, the USDA has dropped the ball on reporting requirements. Strict oversight of foreign land acquisition is needed to protect family farms, rural communities, our food and energy supply, and our military installations from bad actors like the CCP.” – Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
