Congressman Ike Skelton
WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 10, 2010) — On Wednesday, Congressman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) released a statement following passage of sanctions against Iran by the United Nations Security Council: “Today, the UN Security Council has wisely moved to place new sanctions on the Iranian regime. Congress must now follow suit and quickly pass the Iran Refined Petroleum Sanctions Act of 2009, which I fully support.”

On Thursday, Skelton released the following statement on the Department of the Army Inspector General’s report of errors and misconduct at Arlington National Cemetery:

“Arlington National Cemetery is a sacred shrine and it breaks my heart to learn about mismarked gravesites, mishandling of remains, missing documentation, and failures to notify next-of-kin. This conduct is disgraceful and cannot be tolerated.

“The House Armed Services Committee will investigate this issue and work to ensure that every single element of the cemetery’s operations conveys the honor, dignity, and respect our nation’s military heroes and their families have earned.”

Congressman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) serves as chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. Congressman Skelton’s website is at www.house.gov/skelton.
