Gov. Ron DeSantis wants to extend previous efforts to limit the “influence” from China regarding data access and funding through proposed legislation and a new executive order.
During a press conference at Miami-Dade College Thursday, DeSantis said the executive order would “prohibit government entities from procuring technology commodities and services from companies owned by controlled by or domiciled in foreign countries of concern — which includes China.”
“It also includes Iran, Russia, Cuba, and other types of regimes that are hostile to American interests,” DeSantis said.
In addition, the governor offered legislative proposals for the 2023 session starting in March. He is currently on the campaign trail for reelection in the 2022 gubernatorial election.
