HB 1183 prohibits citizens of a foreign adversary from acquiring, purchasing, or leasing agricultural land located in Indiana. It also prohibits them from leasing or owning most property within 10-mile radius of a military installation or armory. The list of foreign adversary governments includes China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Russia.  

The restrictions in this bill cover large parts of our state and would mandate national origin discrimination in the purchase or rental of all types of properties in those parts of Indiana. Fortunately, the bill was amended in the Senate to exclude any citizens of a “foreign adversary” who are also U.S. legal permanent residents or who hold dual citizenship.
