Maine’s Second District Congressman, Bruce Poliquin, voted to help stop the financing of terrorism from Iran—the leading state sponsor of terrorism around the world.

The House passed the Iran Terror Finance Transparency Act Tuesday.

The Act will block President Obama from lifting sanctions on banks in Iran that fund terrorists groups, such as Hezbollah and Hamas.

Congressman Poliquin - a member of the Bipartisan Task Force to Investigate Terrorism Financing - released the following statement:

One thing should be clear to this Administration: Iran cannot be trusted. This nuclear deal with Iran is dangerous and it is astonishing that the President has gone forward with it.  But if the President will continue to ignore the serious threats to our national security, then Congress will act on it instead.  Yesterday, the House did its job to pass legislation that will maintain critical and common sense sanctions against terror financers in Iran.”
