Press Release

Washington, D.C. –Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) helped the House pass three important measures this week to hold Iran accountable this week.

“Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism and we must work to hold this dangerous regime accountable,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Iran continues to illegally develop their ballistic missile program, support international terrorism, and commit human rights abuses against their own population. The legislation we passed out of the House this week will help address this rogue behavior and prevent U.S. tax dollars from subsidizing this regime.”

The measures passed out of the House include H.R. 5119 – the No Heavy Water (2H2O) from Iran Act; H.R. 5631-- the Iran Accountability Act of 2016; and H.R.4992 – the United States Financial System Protection Act of 2016.
