Governor Pillen Issues EO Banning State Use of CCP Tech


LINCOLN, NE – Nebraska Governor Jim Pillen announced his issuance of an executive order banning the state of Nebraska and its contractors from using communications equipment and services produced by Huawei Technologies, ZTE Corporation, Hytera Communications, Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology, and Dahua Technology and their subsidiaries and affiliates. Each of these companies are owned or controlled by the Chinese Communist Party and are on the Federal Communications Commission's Covered List, which includes companies that are considered a risk to national security.


"This executive order will keep the Chinese Communist Party from using technology to infiltrate and influence our state's infrastructure," said Governor Pillen. "I will continue to find opportunities to improve Nebraska's infrastructure and technology grid while remaining vigilant in protecting our state's security."
