WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee unanimously approved legislation introduced by Senators David Perdue (R-GA), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and Bob Casey (D-PA) that restricts ISIS’s ability to profit from the sale of antiquities. The Protect and Preserve International Cultural Property Act already passed the House and now heads to the full Senate for consideration. Below are Senator Perdue’s remarks as prepared for delivery:

“I’d like to offer a few words on the Protect and Preserve International Cultural Property Act, of which I am an original co-sponsor. I’d like to thank the Chairman and Ranking Member for putting this important legislation on today’s agenda, as well as Senator Casey, the bill’s sponsor here in the Senate.
