Iran Investment: our state government should not be investing funds in companies that do business with Iran, Sudan, and other state sponsors of terrorism and genocide.

"One of the present leaders supporting the South Dakota Iran Investments Bill,Patricia Stricherz, is a combat veteran. She has organized veterans on-line with Facebook groups," "We think veterans are most in tune with this legislation."Stricherz, a Dell Rapids resident,said the legislation will do more than send a message."Our state is investing our retirement and trust fund dollars in a country which has supplied arms and munitions to terrorists that have attacked U.S. soldiers,"she said."Divesting from Iran is one way that we can support our state's troops that are currently deployed in the Middle East. The proposed legislation will ensure that South Dakotans' dollars do not fund Iranian-sponsored terrorism.
