H.R. 1698: Iran Ballistic Missiles and International Sanctions Enforcement Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 1698 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 1698 mandates the President to impose sanctions on foreign persons and entities involved with Iran’s ballistic missile program and those who provide or receive conventional weapons from Iran.  

Specifically the bill requires:

  • The President to report to Congress on the foreign and domestic supply chain in Iran that supports it’s ballistic missile program;
  • The President to submit to Congress a determination of whether any Iranian ballistic missile test violates U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231;
  • The President to impose sanctions against: (1) Iranian government agencies involved in ballistic missile development; (2) foreign entities that supply material for, or otherwise facilitate or finance such efforts; (3) foreign persons or foreign government agencies that import, export, or re-export prohibited arms or related material to or from Iran; and (4) foreign persons or entities that transfer goods or technologies contributing to Iran’s ability to acquire or develop ballistic missiles, including launch technology, and destabilizing numbers and types of advanced conventional weapons;
  • The President to investigate potential violations of these sanctions and report to Congress regarding credible information about Iran’s violations of arms restrictions.
