South Carolina Senate Approves Bill to Restrict Land Sales to ‘Foreign Adversaries’


Free Vulcan:

The South Carolina Senate has passed a bill that would partly ban companies or citizens of China and other so-called foreign adversaries from acquiring real property in the state.

The bill was introduced after a Chinese biomedical company, AnPac, announced its agreement to pay $28 million for 500 acres in McCormick County.

The state’s GOP-controlled Senate approved the measure on March 23 in a 31–5 vote.

The ban would impact citizens and corporations from countries listed as adversarial by the U.S. Department of Commerce, such as China, Russia, Cuba, Iran, and North Korea.
