U.S. Representatives Send Letter Asking President to Enforce Iran Sanctions Act

Citing news reports outlining apparent violations of the recently enacted Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act of 2010 (CISADA), U.S. Reps. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Ron Klein (D-Fla.) recently sent a letter to President Obama asking the Administration to immediately enforce the law.

The letter noted that "Although we are encouraged by recent reports of international companies voluntarily exiting the Iranian energy market, it appears that a number of firms -- such as Russia's LUKOIL -- continue to supply Tehran with refined petroleum products." The letter indicates that LUKOIL has a significant business presence in the U.S. and concludes by stating that no "company should be allowed to skirt the Iran Sanctions Act. Therefore, we ask you to enforce the law and hold companies like LUKOIL accountable without delay."

A copy of the Kirk/Klein letter to President Obama can be found here.

Representative Kirk is the Republican nominee for President Obama's former Senate seat in Illinois.
