WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND), a member of the Senate Armed Services and Senate Banking committees, joined Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) in introducing the Iran Sanctions Relief Review Act, a bill to enable Congress to approve or block any effort by an administration to suspend or terminate U.S. sanctions against Iran.
“If the Iranian regime wants to continue trying to build a nuclear weapon and supporting terrorism in the region, then the United States should keep our sanctions in place,” said Senator Cramer. “Iran took advantage of the Obama Administration’s weak approach, and our bill prevents President Biden from being able to make the same mistake.”
This legislation prevents any administration from rolling back sanctions in exchange for advancing negotiations or reentering the Iran nuclear deal without first securing strong congressional support.
Senators Cramer and Hagerty are joined on the bill by Senators John Barrasso (R-WY), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Roy Blunt (R-MO), Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV), John Cornyn (R-TX), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Josh Hawley (R-MO), John Hoeven (R-ND), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Ron Johnson (R-WI), John Kennedy (R-LA), James Lankford (R-OK), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Ben Sasse (R-NE), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Todd Young (R-IN).
