  2. 2. MESSAGE FROM THE NORPAC MISSION LEADERSHIP The NORPAC leadership wants you to know that we have already seen tangible results from the recent mission. Your participation matters! Here is a summary of the exciting developments: 1. The Hezbollah International Financial Prevention Act had 24 cosponsors prior to the NORPAC Mission. Now there are over 100 cosponsors for the House bill. 2. Sen. Marco Rubio (R- Fla.) agreed to co-introduce similar Hezbollah legislation in the Senate. 3. On the Mission day we added a 60th Senate cosponsor (John Walsh D-MT) onto the Menendez-Kirk Iran Sanctions Bill- a Herculean feat given the President's pressure to delay that bill. 4. Rep. Alan Grayson (D- Fla.) prepared legislation to cut off funding for higher education institutions which support BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanctions) of Israel. ______________________________________________ LOST AND FOUND Found - Artscroll Pesach Machzor, inscribed Y.
