Last week, Bill voted to increase sanctions on North Korea, Iran, and Russia. As Bill noted after the sanctions passed, “North Korea and Iran have continued to develop hostile weapons capabilities that threaten our troops and our allies despite diplomatic efforts to stabilize both regions. This bipartisan legislation also enhances sanctions on Russia because of their hostile cyber activities as well as their intervention in the Ukraine. Lastly, this important bill limits the ability of the Executive Branch to unilaterally provide sanction relief to Russia without congressional review.”
This sanction package was signed into law yesterday by President Trump.
