House Passed Nuclear Iran Prevention Act
Yesterday, the House passed The Nuclear Iran Prevention Act (H.R. 850) with overwhelming bi-partisan support. This legislation strengthens sanctions against Iran, to thwart their nuclear weapons program. The 400-20 vote reiterates America’s commitment to preventing the development Iran’s nuclear capabilities. Specifically, this legislation authorizes the President to increase sanctions on Iran by banning companies from conducting business in the U.S. if it is found they have a conducted considerable trade with Iran. It also reaffirms America’s belief that the Iranian people are deserving of a responsive and democratic government. H.R. 850 also directs the President to provide a report on the development of Iranian nuclear capabilities after 60 days from enactment. President Obama has previously stated commitment to holding the Islamic Republic accountable: “The leaders of Iran must recognize that now is the time for a diplomatic solution, because a coalition stands united in demanding that they meet their obligations. And we will do what is necessary to prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon.” The Nuclear Iran Prevention Act (H.R. 850) is now in the Senate for consideration.
