American lawmakers seek state sanctions against Iran

A bipartisan group of American lawmakers wants the Senate to endorse continued sanctions by state and local governments against Iran, The Hill reported on Wednesday.

Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), who is running for president, Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) have introduced a resolution that would "strongly support" their sanctions against Iran for any terrorism-related activities, human rights violations or other illegal actions, the website said.
