Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the Senate passage of the Countering Iran's Destabilizing Activities Act of 2017, a bill he co-authored with other key senators:

"This vote was long overdue, but I'm glad we're finally holding the Iranian regime accountable for its imperial aggression. Now the world knows we won't stand by and let the regime in Tehran spread havoc in the Middle East with impunity. We'll stand by our friends, we'll stand up to aggression, and we won't let Iran's bullying continue to go unchecked."
