Rep. Black Statement on North Korea’s Ballistic Missile Launch
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06) responded to North Korea’s ballistic missile launch earlier today with the following statement:
“It is our responsibility in Congress to protect our citizens and hold North Korea accountable for their actions. This latest ballistic missile launch continues North Korea’s alarming escalation of aggressive acts, and we will not tolerate it,” said Congressman Black. “Just this week, the House passed H.R. 3364, the Countering Adversarial Nations Through Sanctions Act, in a bipartisan vote sending the message that continued missile development and nuclear activity by North Korea is unacceptable. I urge President Trump to sign this legislation into law as quickly as possible.”
On Thursday, the Senate passed H.R. 3364, sending the legislation to President Trump’s desk.
