WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after the House passed the Iranian Leadership Asset Transparency Act (H.R. 1638), sponsored by Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R-ME), and the Strengthening Oversight of Iran’s Access to Finance Act (H.R. 4324), sponsored by Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX).

“Iran is the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism and continues to play a destructive and destabilizing role in the world. I commend Rep. Poliquin and Rep. Williams for introducing legislation that enhances the Treasury Department’s reporting requirements to Congress so that we can be better equipped to stop Iran’s ability to money launder and finance terror.”
