Washington, D.C. – U.S,. Representative Mark Green has introduced the Military Perimeter Transparency Act, which directs the Secretary of Defense to generate an ongoing report regarding foreign land purchases around United States military bases.
Green said, “It’s critically important for the Department of Defense to identify when foreign adversaries like China or Russia acquire land near American military bases. America’s adversaries, especially those with a history of cyberattacks, espionage, and disinformation warfare, should never be allowed within reach of a U.S. military installation. Doing so would be a risk to our security and a major strategic mistake.”
