Ohio reps initiate Iran divestment

Two
Ohio state representatives initiated legislation that would disinvest pension
funds from companies that deal with Iran.

In
their announcement Thursday, Josh Mandel and Shannon Jones, both Republicans
cited a study by a conservative group that claimed ties between four public
employees pensions and over 300 companies that have ties to Iran.

“The Marines I served with and the citizens I
represent would be concerned to know that their tax and retirement dollars are
being invested in Iran,” Mandel said. “It’s risky. It’s wrong. It must be
stopped.”
