H.R. 4744: Iran Human Rights and Hostage-Taking Accountability Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 4744 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. 4744 details the human rights abuses and hostage-taking perpetrated by the Government of Iran. It requires the President to determine whether senior Iranian officials are responsible for human rights abuses and whether official Iranian businesses should be sanctioned for public corruption under existing law. It also imposes property-blocking and visa-denial sanctions for Iranian officials (and family members) responsible for politically motivated detentions of U.S. citizens and residents, or abuses against Iranian expatriates.
