WASHINGTON - New Jersey Rep. Leonard Lance (R-7th) has released a statement on the Trump Administration placing new sanctions on Iran:

“Iran’s latest ballistic missile test was again in total disregard and violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions and international law.  For too long Iran has been under the impression that it can test missiles, finance terrorism and abuse its own people without ramifications," Lance said..  "I am pleased President Trump took this action.  Iran needs to get the message that its provocations will not go unanswered.”   

 

Lance, whose congressional district encompasses 54 towns in central New Jersey has also joined colleagues Rep. Peter J. Roskam of Illinois, Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York and Rep. Doug Lamborn (of Colorado to introduce the Iran Nonnuclear Sanctions Act that would target the Islamic Republic’s support for terrorism, human rights abuses and ballistic missile program.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is introducing similar legislation in the U.S. Senate. The four lawmakers chair the House Republican Israel Caucus.  The Iran Nonnuclear Sanctions Act would impose new sanctions against Iran’s military and elements that help terrorism.  It also imposes new sanctions against those who knowingly aid Iran’s ballistic missile program.
