Steil’s Iran sanctions legislation included in the Maximum Pressure Act

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today Congressman Bryan Steil (WI-01) joined former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Republican Study Committee (RSC) members to introduce the Maximum Pressure Act. This bill enforces and strengthens sanctions on the Iranian Regime. Two of Steil’s bills, the Stop Evasion of Iran Sanctions Act and the No Sanctions Relief for Terrorists Act are included in the Maximum Pressure Act.

“Sanctions are an effective tool to hold the Iranian Regime accountable, deter the Regime’s nuclear buildup, and weaken Iran’s leaders who are perpetuating and enabling terrorism around the world.

Today’s action is a step towards Congress reasserting itself to end the Regime’s development of a nuclear weapon and stop its support of terrorism. I am glad to join former Secretary Mike Pompeo, Chairman Jim Banks, and my colleagues to support the needed, comprehensive Maximum Pressure Act,” said Steil.

Steil’s Iran sanctions work in the 117th Congress includes the following:
