TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida House is joining the Florida Senate in telling President Barack Obama and Congress that they want new economic sanctions against Iran if the country doesn’t agree that it won’t use its nuclear program for weapons.

The House approved the message Friday, a day after the Senate also backed it. The two page message states that a nuclear-armed Iran poses a significant threat to the United States and international security.

Republican Rep. Kevin Rader said Iran is in a part of the world that least needs nuclear weapons, and its leaders have proclaimed death to America and Israel.

The United States and Iran are trying to negotiate an agreement that would lift sanctions against Iran if it agrees to steps that will ensure it doesn’t create nuclear weapons.
