Legislation combating Iranian Aggression
Reauthorizing the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA)
The Iran Sanctions Act (ISA), which was suspended as part of last year’s international nuclear accord with Tehran, is a law targeting international investment in Iran. It remains on the books but will expire at the end of the year unless Congress extends it.
The renewal of ISA is a crucial step to ensure there are sanctions in place to “snap back” should Iran violate the nuclear agreement. Extension of ISA would also send a strong signal to Iran that Congress is carefully scrutinizing its actions. Failure to reauthorize would send the opposite signal.
There is currently bipartisan support to renew ISA, and recently the Administration has given approving remarks to the Act’s extension.
What we are requesting of Congress:
A. THANK Congress for reauthorizing the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA)
House and Senate:
Thank you for voting to reauthorize the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) to maintain the existing architecture of sanctions against Iran in case they violate the terms of the JCPOA.
