House Fin Svcs Approves Bills to Penalize Iran and Hamas

Posted 11/17/23

The House Financial Services Committee passed 11 bills last week sanctioning Iran and Hamas, in response to the Tehran's role in funding Hamas militants responsible for the Oct. 7 attacks on Israel.

Some bills sought to rein in the Biden administration's dealings with the Iranian regime. Others were meant to "ensure that any humanitarian assistance to Iran is not used to finance acts of terror," according to a press release from the committee.

It remains to be seen if House Leadership has the discipline and motivation to bring the bills to a successful resolution in any measurable period of time.
