In an effort to to curb Iran's antagonistic conduct with its Middle Eastern neighbors and the Western world, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-8) voted in support of H.R. 1905, the Iran Threat Reduction Act of 2011 and H.R. 2105, Iran, North Korea, and Syria Nonproliferation Reform and Modernization Act. Both bills would strengthen and broaden the United States' sanctions against Iran.
"We need to make it clear to Iran that the United States will no longer tolerate reckless, destructive actions that support terrorism and threaten the security of the entire world," said Pascrell, who was a cosponsor of the legislation. "Preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons is of paramount importance to the security of the United States and our allies, including the State of Israel. I am pleased that the House has passed this measure with strong, bipartisan support."
The legislation overwhelmingly passed with the following vote tallies:
H.R. 1905, 410-11
H.R. 2105, 418-2
