U.S. Congressmen introduce bill to ban tourism to N. Korea

Legislation would also require Treasury to issue permits for non-tourism travel

Two U.S. Congressmen introduced legislation on Thursday that would limit American citizens visiting North Korea, according to a press release from Congressman Joe Wilson.

Wilson and Adam Schiff put forward the North Korea Travel Control Act, which would require the U.S. Department of Treasury to issue licenses on transactions regarding travel to and within the DPRK, while also banning tourist travel by American citizens to North Korea.
