State Senator Scott Brown

From the Tufts Daily:

"In an appearance last night in Eaton Hall, Brown advocated for a plan that would withdraw the Massachusetts' Pension Reserves Investment Management Board's (PRIMB) funding for corporations that do business in Iran. This would lead to around $1.1 billion worth of divestment."

" 'Brown feels that such a passive approach will be ineffective. 'We have all this money that we are investing in Iran,' he said. 'There comes a time when you've go to stand up and make a choice.' "
