WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the bipartisan agreement on Russia and Iran sanctions legislation: 

“I’m pleased that both parties in the House and Senate have reached agreement on sanctions legislation that will hold Russia and Iran accountable for their destabilizing actions around the world. The legislation ensures that both the Majority and Minority are able to exercise our oversight role over the Administration’s implementation of sanctions. Other changes made to the bill will ensure effective and unified implementation among partners and make provisions more workable. I look forward to seeing this legislation on the Floor next week, where I’m confident it will receive strong, bipartisan support.”
