Unless reauthorized by both the House and the Senate, the Iran Sanctions Extension Act cannot effectively target Iran’s nuclear program and pressure Tehran to cease support for terrorism and its ballistic missile program. The bill has now been approved by the House. Contact your Senator to ensure its passage!
Last week, the House of Representatives passed the Iran Sanctions Extension Act in an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 419-1.
This bill would extend the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA), a critical bipartisan piece of legislation that constitutes the core of American sanctions on Iran. ISA targets Iran’s nuclear program and pressures Tehran to cease support for terrorism and its ballistic missile program.
It is crucial for Congress to reauthorize ISA to ensure that there are sanctions to “snap back” should Iran violate the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Unless reauthorized by both the House and the Senate, the law will expire at the end of 2016.
