The House has voted for U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin’s bill to publicize the finances of Iran’s leaders.
Poliquin says the 70 or so top leaders of Iran are gathering huge personal wealth while are also providing support to terrorist organizations, including groups targeting the United States.
“Citizens of Iran and people of the world should know how much wealth has been accumulated by these chief sponsors of terrorism and what the money is being used for,” he says.
Poliquin’s legislation would require the Treasury Department to gather information on the wealth of those individuals and publish it on its website not only in English, but in the three prevalent languages in Iran.
The bill now goes to the Senate for its consideration.
