Reach out to members of Congress: Increase Sanctions on Iran
03:13 PM Jul 31, 2012
Today, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which tightens sanctions against Iran because of its failure to answer questions about its nuclear program.
Similarly, this week, U.S. House and Senate negotiators reached an agreement on new legislation to increase economic sanctions on Iran. The proposed bill, which is expected to be voted on sometime this week, would place harsher penalties on financial institutions doing business with Iran while further restricting Tehran's energy and shipping arenas in an effort to halt their suspected nuclear weapons program.
We urge you to take a moment and reach out to members of Congress, letting them know it is crucial that they pass this bill. Placing stricter sanctions on Iran is the only possible way to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran, which poses a threat to not only the Unites States and Israel, but the world as well. Take action and send this letter to your representative now, asking that they move this important bill forward before Congress adjourns for a month-long August recess.
