Abstract:

No firms have been sanctioned under the Iran Sanctions Act ISA. Set to expire in August 2006, legislation in the 109th Congress the Iran Freedom Support Act, P.L. 109-293 extended it until December 31, 2011, terminated application to Libya, and added provisions, although with substantial Administration flexibility in implementation. Proposed ISA-related legislation in the 110th Congress, such as H.R. 1400, would remove some of that flexibility.
