NY State representatives push to keep Iran divestment in place

NEW YORK – State Senator Thomas Croci and Assemblywoman Nily Rozic called this week for the immediate passage of a legislation they drafted to prevent the repeal of the existing Iran Divestment Act, which includes sanctions against the financial and energy sectors of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“This bill is about ensuring New York State can exercise its legal authority in prohibiting companies from doing business in Iran’s energy sector,” Nily Rozic, the first Israeli-born member elected to the State Legislature, said. “In keeping existing sanctions against Iran, we are sending a strong message that the State will not stand for any threat against the security of its citizens and disruption of global stability.”
