Nonnuclear Iran Sanctions Act of 2016

December 7, 2016
December 7, 2016
Referred to Senate (sub)committee

In order to maintain pressure on Iran in the wake of the 7/14/15 nuclear deal, this bill would strengthen and expand sanctions with respect to the IRCG, human rights abusers in Iran, Iran’s ballistic missile program, and several other institutions and individuals.

Although this bill was not seen as a serious effort to create a new law—it was introduced too late in the legislative session for full consideration—it was expected to be reintroduced in some form in 2017, during the first session of the 115th Congress.

3 cosponsors (3R).

Last major action: 12/7/16 referred to Senate Comm. on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs.
