Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act of 2010
(June 24, 2010)
On June 24, 2010, with a 408-8 vote, the U.S. House of Representatives joined the Senate in approving the toughest sanctions bill to day against Iran, targeting the Islamic Republic’s energy sector in an effort to stop it from developing nuclear weapons. The bill aims to prohibit foreign banks from dealing with blacklisted Iranian financial institutions and targets gasoline sales to the Islamic Republic. The Senate passed the bill earlier the same day with a 99-0 vote.
