As a response to reports of China threatening America’s food supply by acquiring U.S. farmland and agriculture companies, the legislators state the bill will ensure USDA is fully involved in reviewing foreign adversaries’ acquisition of American companies that may affect the domestic agriculture sector….

USDA reports foreign persons and entities held an interest in 35.2 million acres of U.S. agricultural land in 2019, accounting for 2.7% of all privately owned agricultural land….

Individuals and entities in five countries accounted for more than 62% of all foreign-owned agricultural land in 2019, according to a Congressional Research Service report. As a share of all foreign-owned acres, these were Canada (29%, mostly forestland), the Netherlands (14%), Italy (7%), the United Kingdom (6%), and Germany (6%)….

The PASS Act:

  • Blacklists China, Russia, Iran and North Korea from purchasing U.S. agriculture companies,
  • Includes agriculture and biotechnology related to agriculture as critical infrastructure,
  • Adds the secretary of agriculture as a standing member of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States…
  • Requires reporting from the secretary of agriculture on the risk of foreign purchases of agriculture companies to the American agriculture sector.

Father, we thank You for this action taken by our legislators. It is just the beginning of returning the land to its rightful owners, the people of this country. Lord, move in the hearts and minds of our legislators to do more. This is a Shemitah year in Israel. Let it be so in our country, too. This country was based upon the principals laid out in Your Word. Father, our laws need to prevent foreign businesses to “own” land here. It is illegal in Viet Nam. You can only lease land as a foreigner. And Father, some Americans have bought too much farmland. Lord, let this be a year of jubilee that the land would be returned to the rightful owners and growers and ranchers. Glorify Yourself in this. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
