Bipartisan sanctions legislation on Iran has been introduced in both the House and the Senate.  The House bill targets Iranian and foreign companies involved in the ballistic missile program, including the banks that support these companies. The Senate bill imposes mandatory sanctions on entities supporting Iran's ballistic missile program, applies terrorism sanctions to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and includes measures to enforce the arms embargo.
