U.S. Congress Passes Final Sanctions Legislation
28 July 2017
View Client Update
On July 27, 2017, the U.S. Congress passed a bill that expands U.S. sanctions against Russia and adopts additional sanctions against Iran and North Korea.
If adopted as law, the bill would, among other actions, establish a congressional review process to authorize any changes to existing sanctions against Russia, expand the sectoral sanctions program and authorize secondary sanctions against non-U.S. persons for engaging in certain Russia-related activities.
The White House has given no indication whether President Trump will sign the bill or use his veto authority, but there is a strong chance that any veto would be overridden by Congress.
