A bipartisan coalition of House and Senate critics of South Africa's racial policies introduced legislation that would prohibit new U.S. investment in South Africa and ban imports of the country's gold Kruggerrands. The bill would prohibit new U.S. bank loans to South Africa and new investments by U.S. firms there except for projects designed to foster radical desegregation. It would also ban the sale of American-made computers. The measure would not halt reinvestment of profits or the raising of capital within South Africa.
