Moran Proposes Prioritizing Americans Over Aid To Iran

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) introduced legislation (S. 2452) this week to limit the president’s ability to transfer funds to Iran. S. 2452 directs the U.S. government to put justice for American victims of Iranian terrorism ahead of compensation for the Iranian regime.

“The United States should not be funding governments that openly violate human rights, proudly disregard U.N. Security Council resolutions, and call for the destruction of America and its allies,” Sen. Moran said. “This bill directs the U.S. government to put justice for American victims of Iranian terrorism ahead of compensation for the Iranian regime. Rather than incentivize state-sponsored kidnapping, the administration should remind the government of Iran that terror and hostage taking is not a for-profit enterprise.”

The bill prohibits the transfer of funds for the payment by the United States of amounts awarded by the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal to Iran or nationals of Iran until Iran has paid certain compensatory damages awarded to United States persons by United States courts.
