Congress Introduces North Korea and Iran Sanctions Legislation

House lawmakers introduced a new bill, the Korean Interdiction and Modernization of Sanctions Act (H.R. 1644), that would expand existing sanctions targeting trade with the North Korean regime. Further, two new Iran sanctions bills were introduced in the House and Senate – the Iran Ballistic Missiles and International Sanctions Enforcement Act (H.R. 1698) and the Countering Iran’s Destabilizing Activities Act of 2017 (S. 722), respectively. The House bill is narrower and would establish new sanctions measures targeting Iran’s ballistic missiles program and acquisition of conventional weapons. The Senate bill is broader and would establish new ballistic missiles and conventional weapons sanctions, in addition to sanctions related to Iran’s support for terrorism and human rights abuses.
