The administration of Gov. Ron DeSantis is considering prohibiting China from buying any property in Florida, including agriculture.
DeSantis has previously opposed China acquiring territory.
“Do we want to see that from the standpoint of national security? And frequently, businesses may present themselves as private, but if you take a closer look, you’ll see that they’re really under the [CCPsupervision, ]’s according to DeSantis.
The DeSantis Administration signed an executive order and legislation proposal in September to prevent governments like the Chinese Communist Party from collecting the personal information of Floridians.
DeSantis made public a signed executive order that forbids state government agencies from buying tech products and services from firms controlled or owned by China or other problematic nations. The other nations are Cuba, Russia, and Iran.
The very last thing, according to DeSantis, is for the CCP to obtain access to people’s private information.
This will stop bad actors and foreign entities from accessing the personal information and technology systems of Floridians.
He expressed concern over foreign governments exploiting technology to get personal data about Americans, such as information from their driver’s licenses and academic records.
He declared, “I believe there is a significant national security concern that we failed to address TikTok earlier.” “And you’re noticing this everywhere,”
The governor also wants legislation to be put forth for the 2023 session that would forbid public agencies from working with businesses owned by or under the direction of suspect foreign nations if the agreement gives the parties involved access to the private information of Floridians.
“We want all of your information secured,” he explained. “So this is things like social security numbers, it’s things like your medical records that should not be in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party.”
He said, “We want to secure all of your information.” Therefore, the Chinese Communist Party shouldn’t have access to information like your social security number or your medical data.
