Columbus Republican’s OORAH Act on way to becoming law

Congressman Greg Pence’s OORAH Act is on its way to becoming a law.

The act was incorporated into the National Defense Authorization Act which was passed by the U.S. Senate yesterday, according to Pence’s spokeswoman. The Columbus Republican introduced the Oorah Act to get restitution from Iran for the families of Marines killed in the 1983 attack in Beirut. Pence is a former Marine who served in Lebanon.

The OORAH Act allows the families of the victims in that attack to access $1.68 billion in frozen Iranian funds
