Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the introduction of H.R. 4992, the United States Financial System Protection Act of 2016:

“We cannot grant Iran access to the U.S. dollar in any form. Iran supports terrorism around the globe, continues to test ballistic missiles, and commits egregious human rights abuses against the Iranian people. Iran shouldn’t get relief simply because they agreed in word to a flawed nuclear deal. House Republicans are concerned with Iran’s destabilizing behavior and any potential access to the U.S. dollar. I commend Chairman Royce for introducing this important legislation.”
