House Passes Sinema-Supported Bill to Implement North Korea Sanctions

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The House of Representatives today passed the Otto Warmbier North Korea Nuclear Sanctions Act (H.R. 3898), bipartisan legislation co-sponsored by Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-09) to implement new sanctions on North Korea.

“North Korea continues to undermine global peace and security and threaten the safety of the United States and our allies,” said Congresswoman Sinema. “We must do everything we can to cut off funding to North Korea and stop their nuclear weapons program. I’ll continue working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get money out of the hands of violent dictators and terrorists and find solutions that protect America’s safety and security.”

Congresswoman Sinema serves on the House Financial Services Committee’s Terrorism and Illicit Finance subcommittee. In August, the President signed into law the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (H.R. 3364), which included legislation sponsored by Congresswoman Sinema to establish a whole-of-government strategy to combat terrorism financing.
