Statement of U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) on Senate Passage of Russia PNTR/Magnitsky Bill

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Jim McGovern, the House author of the Magnitsky bill, released the following statement today following Senate passage of HR 6156:

"Today is a landmark day in the history of U.S. human rights policy. With the Senate's passage of the Magnitsky bill, we have established a critical precedent that human rights is an essential component of trade legislation. It's important to note that this language will apply to all human rights violators in Russia -- not just those responsible for Sergei Magnitsky's murder. I want to commend the members of the Senate -- particularly my friends Ben Cardin and John Kerry -- for their tireless efforts. And I look forward to working with them in the next Congress to extend this language globally."
