Justice for Victims of Iranian Terrorism Act

H.R.3547
Introduced: 
September 9, 2015
114
First
October 1, 2015
Passed in House

This bill would prohibit the Obama administration from lifting any sanctions in connection with the nuclear deal reached with Iran on 7/14 until the president certified to Congress that Iran had paid every judgment brought against it between 4/24/96 and the date of the bill’s enactment into law (estimated at over $43 b.).

Ahead of a scheduled 10/1 vote, Pres. Obama pledged to veto the bill on the grounds that it would undermine the 7/14 deal.

118 cosponsors (118R).

Last major action: 10/1/15 passed in House by yea/nay vote, 251–173.
