House Passes Iran Sanctions Act

(June 9, 1998)


In an effort to prevent foreign companies from helping Iran to develop and build new missiles, the House passed the Iran Missile Proliferation Sanctions Act (IMPSA) by a vote of 392-22 with 3 members voting “present” and 16 others not voting. The measure is designed to close loopholes in existing counterproliferation laws and impose sanctions on foreign companies that provide missile technology to Iran. It is particularly aimed at preventing Russia from continuing to provide support to Iran for its ballistic missile programs. The Senate passed an identical bill on May 22, 1998, by a vote of 90-4.
