Washington, D.C. — Earlier on Wednesday, August 1st, 2012 the House debated legislation co-authored by U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which greatly strengthens U.S. economic sanctions against Iran and counters the Iranian regime's efforts to evade existing sanctions. The bill is designed to implement crippling economic pressure in order to compel Tehran to abandon its illegal nuclear weapons programs, its support for global extremist groups, and other dangerous policies. The Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act (HR 1905) also targets human rights violators in Iran and Syria.
