Prepared by: Rules Committee (RC)
In November 2013, the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, plus Germany, known as the “P5+1,” signed a Joint Plan of Action (JPA) with Iran to provide incremental relief from international pressure for positive steps toward transparency of Iran’s nuclear program.
The memorial urges Congress and the President of the United States to pass and enact new economic sanctions against Iran should that nation be found to be in violation of the JPA or fail to reach an acceptable agreement by the dates set forth in the November 2014 extension of the JPA.
