Press Release

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker issued the following statement after voting for the bipartisan Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act today:

“Iran is the global leader in state-sponsored terrorism. North Korea continues to develop and test weapons that can reach the United States. Russia claims sovereign nations as its own, conducts cyber-attacks aimed at dismantling democracy, including in the United States, and props up the murderous Assad regime. This package of sanctions renews our commitment to our allies and gives the U.S. the leverage needed to hold these nations accountable for their actions. I am glad House leadership is being responsive to this pressing issue, and I am hopeful President Trump will support this bipartisan effort and sign this bill into law when he receives it.”
