Congress Adopts Significant New Sanctions Against Russia, Iran, and North Korea

July 28, 2017, Covington Alert

Congress has passed and sent to President Trump, for his signature or veto, a bill that would impose significant new sanctions against Russia, Iran, and North Korea. The legislation—the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act—enjoys broad bipartisan support, having passed the U.S. House of Representatives on July 25 by a vote of 419-3, and the U.S. Senate on July 27 by a vote of 98-2. It builds on an earlier sanctions bill relating to Russia and Iran that overwhelmingly passed the Senate in June, and a separate bill targeting North Korea that easily passed the House in May.
