House to Vote on Iran Sanctions, Override President’s Reconciliation Veto
by Randy Neugebauer on February 3, 2016 at 7:47 AM
This week, the House is back in session and we will be voting on some important foreign policy and conservative domestic priorities. The House is expected to consider the Iran Terror Finance Transparency Act (H.R. 3662) to enhance Congressional oversight of U.S. economic and trade sanctions with the Iranian regime. This bill would also make it harder for President Obama to remove certain sanctioned Iranians or Iranian entities from U.S. sanctions lists. Iran remains the largest state-sponsor of terrorism and we must continue to move forward common sense bills like this one to keep the American people safe.
This week, the House is also expected to vote on a bill to override President Obama’s veto of our reconciliation bill—the bill that dismantled major parts of Obamacare and defunded Planned Parenthood. These are top conservative priorities and I am hopeful we can get the votes necessary to override the President and move these measures into law.
