Today on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press Daily” with Chuck Todd, Chairman Royce urged the Senate to quickly pass the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (H.R. 3364), which the House passed yesterday by a vote of 419-3. Below are the video and key excerpts.

“[T]he reason North Korea is in that bill is because North Korea – we found out yesterday – has fast-forwarded their ICBM program and are now…a very short time away from being able to launch and hit the United States.”

“419 to three is a very strong margin… The important point is to get this bill up and out of the Senate soon.”
