WASHINGTON, March 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Common Sense America has called on the House Committee on Natural Resources to renew and expand its investigations into foreign funding of American nonprofit environmental groups. In 2018 Congress began investigating foreign nations, including China and Russia, for their influence over domestic non-profits, Center for Biological Diversity, EarthJustice, and others.
“China has had a tremendous amount of success infiltrating our nation in ways we have never even expected – buying up critical farmland, owning some of our most popular social media apps, and most recently spying on Americans using seemingly innocuous balloons,” says Steve Crim, founder of Common Sense America. “Now we learn from a recent Bloomberg article that China could have even more influence over our food supply than ever anticipated.”
In light of these developments, renewing and expanding the Committee on Natural Resources investigation is a prudent action to fully understand China’s influence in the environmental lobby and our food supply.
