This week the U.S. House of Representatives approved an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would prohibit federal government agencies from contracting for goods or services from any person or business that does business with a U.S.-designated State Sponsor of Terrorism. The amendment was sponsored by Rep. David Rivera (R-Fla.).

According to a press release issued by Rep. Rivera's office:

"This amendment would prohibit businesses that engage in business activity with terrorist nations—those nations that have been officially designated as sponsor of terrorism by our own government—from contracting and procurement opportunities with the Department of Defense. This is an issue of protecting not only American security, but protecting American jobs." Congressman Rivera said.
