House Foreign Affairs Committee Mark-up
This week, the House Foreign Affairs Committee held a mark-up of H.R. 1771, the North Korea Sanctions Enforcement Act of 2013, H.R. 4449, the Human Trafficking Prevention Act, and H.Res. 600, a resolution urging the government of Afghanistan to pursue and support transparency in their upcoming presidential run-off election. All three bills passed the committee by voice votes and I look forward to them coming before the full House for a vote.
