Virginia Lawmakers Support Banning ‘Foreign Adversaries’ from Buying Farmland

The Center Square (Madison Hirneisen), The Star News Network

A proposal backed by Gov. Glenn Youngkin to prevent “foreign adversaries” from acquiring

farmland in Virginia won support in the House and Senate. Two bills -- Senate Bill 1438 and House Bill 2325 -- would prohibit “foreign adversaries” from purchasing agricultural land in the commonwealth starting this year. The bill defines “foreign adversaries” as any foreign government or “nongovernment person” determined by the U.S. Sec. of Commerce.
