House Passes “Voice-Vote” H.R.31

After having been introduced on January 3, 2019, Congress passed a bill from Representative Eliot Engel (D-NY16) that would impose sanctions on Iranian actors contributing to Syria’s instability. The bill was passed by voice-vote and appears to come at a time when Congress is reasserting involvement in Syria while the President concurrently floats a possible withdrawal.

Up next, the Senate may consider complementary legislation introduced by Senator Jim Risch (R-ID).
