Huizenga Votes to Increase Sanctions on North Korea, Iran, and Russia
Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) released the following statement after voting to increase sanctions on North Korea, Russia, and Iran. H.R. 3364, the Countering Adversarial Nations through Sanctions Act, passed the House with overwhelming bipartisan support by a vote of 419-3.
“This bipartisan legislation holds some of the world’s worst actors accountable for their actions,” said Congressman Huizenga. “North Korea and Iran have continued to develop hostile weapons capabilities that threaten our troops and allies despite diplomatic efforts to stabilize the region. Specifically to Russia, this bill expands sanctions due to hostile cyber activities as well as their intervention in the Ukraine. Additionally this legislation limits the ability of the Executive Branch to unilaterally provide sanction relief to Russia without congressional review. I am glad to see this sanctions package pass with overwhelming bipartisan support.”
