Sen. Moran Introduces Bipartisan Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act

Washington, D.C. - Yesterday U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and 25 U.S. Senators introduced the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act, bipartisan legislation proposing sanctions on Iran if the nation breaches the interim Joint Plan of Action agreed to in Geneva or fails to reach a final agreement.

“The development of an Iranian nuclear arsenal remains the greatest threat to stability in the Middle East,” Sen. Moran said. “While I hope that the ongoing negations will bear increased cooperation and a chance at peace, the sanctions proposed in this legislation would provide the world a critical insurance policy if diplomatic efforts ultimately fall short.”

The bipartisan legislation was co-sponsored by twenty-six senators, including Senators Roberts (R-Kan.) and Blunt (R-Mo.)

The prospective sanctions legislation requires further reductions in purchases of Iranian petroleum and applies additional penalties to strategic elements of the Iranian economy, including the engineering, mining and construction sectors. It also gives the Obama Administration up to one year from the conclusion of an implementing agreement to pursue a diplomatic track resulting in the complete and verifiable termination of Iran’s illicit nuclear weapons program.
