From Left to Right: New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos jointly pledge to move the Iran Divestment Act of 2012 through the New York Legislature.

The only thing that bothers me is that we had to pass a law for something that should be blatantly obvious to any patriotic American.

THANK YOU TO THE NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATURE

Iran180 is pleased to inform you that yesterday, January 9, 2012, on the first day of the new legislative session, the New York State Assembly passed a landmark piece of legislation that will assist in the isolation of an increasingly belligerent Iran.

Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Manhattan) announced passage of the legislation, the Iran Divestment Act of 2012 yesterday.

The Iran Divestment Act of 2012 prohibits state and local governments from conducting business with companies that invest in Iran’s energy sector.

“The announcement this weekend of the launch of a second major uranium enrichment site is further proof that Iran is a known sponsor of international terrorism. Combined with last year’s foiled terror attempt in Washington D.C., it is clear that we must do more to combat this growing threat to the international community,” said Silver. “Companies that invest in Iran’s energy sector only provide greater resources to advance further acts of terror. This vital legislation will bar governments in New York from doing business with any of these companies.”
