On July 12, 2016, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) introduced legislation to add the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) as a full member of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS” or the “Committee”).  This Stroock Special Bulletin provides an overview of the “Securing American Food Equity Act of 2016” (or the “SAFE Act of 2016”), which, if enacted,  would ensure that the USDA has a permanent seat at the CFIUS table.
