LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester is holding the nuclear armed nation of North Korea accountable with tougher sanctions on the rogue regime.
Tester’s Otto Warmbier Banking Restrictions Involving North Korea Act will sanction financial institutions that facilitate transactions for the North Korean government or businesses. Tester’s legislation passed out of the Senate Banking Committee unanimously.
“These sanctions will send a strong message to North Korea and anyone who might turn a blind eye to their threats,” said Tester. “Increasing sanctions will increase the likelihood that we can bring North Korea to the negotiating table and stop their dangerous and irresponsible behavior.”
