Weakening the Iran Nuclear Agreement, Parts 1 and 2

RECENT VOTES

Weakening the Iran Nuclear Agreement, Parts 1 and 2

On Wednesday December 13, 2017 the House considered H.R. 1638, the Iranian Leadership Asset Transparency Act. This legislation weakens the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the Iran Nuclear Agreement. It requires the Treasury Secretary to broadly report on the assets of Iranís senior political and military leaders, regardless of whether they were ever subject to sanctions. This legislation passed the House in 2016 and President Obama issued a veto threat because it could undermine the JCPOA. The investigators who are responsible for overseeing the sanctions program would also be responsible for researching and preparing the asset reports ó without the additional resources to support that expanded workload. I voted NO. H.R. 1638 passed and the entire vote is recorded below:

On Thursday December 14, 2017 the House considered H.R. 4324, the Strengthening Oversight of Iranís Access to Finance Act. This legislation is also an attempt to weaken the JCPOA, by compromising one of its conditions. Through the JCPOA, the United States has agreed to lift restrictions on the sale of U.S. commercial planes to Iran for civilian purposes. H.R. 4324 expands certification requirements for approving the sales that go well beyond what has already been agreed to in the JCPOA. Under the legislation, the Treasury Secretary must consider factors that are not related to nuclear issues and are not part of the deal. This is one more way to put in jeopardy the obligations that the U.S. has already agreed to in the JCPOA. I voted NO. H.R. 4324 passed and the entire vote is recorded below:
