On June 15, the Senate passed legislation that would impose new U.S. sanctions that would target Iran‘s ballistic missile program, its support for terrorism, and human rights violations. Senators voted 98-2 in favor of the measure. The Countering Iran’s Destabilizing Activities Act of 2017 would impose sanctions on any foreign person or foreign entity that does business with an entity already designated by the administration as having a connection to Iran’s ballistic missile program.
