GOP-led House schedules votes on Iran sanctions bills Monday after attack on Israel

There are 5 bills up for votes related to Iran on Monday, according to the Monday schedule released by House Majority Leader Steve Scalise

The GOP-led House of Representatives will vote on a series of Iran sanctions bills on Monday in the aftermath of the Iran missile attack on Israel on Saturday. 

“In light of Iran’s unjustified attack on Israel, the House will move from its previously announced legislative schedule next week to instead consider legislation that supports our ally Israel and holds Iran and its terrorist proxies accountable,” House Majority Leader Steve Scalise had said in a statement on Saturday before the formal schedule was announced.

There is currently a total of 5 bills related to Iran on the House schedule for Monday, according to Scalise's office.

The bills scheduled for votes includes H.R. 5921, the No U.S. Financing for Iran Act of 2023, H.R. 5923, the Iran-China Energy Sanctions Act of 2023, H.R. 6245, the Holding Iranian Leaders Accountable Act of 2023 and H.R. 6015, the Iran Sanctions Accountability Act of 2023.

H.R.6408, which is a resolution that would "amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to terminate the tax-exempt status of terrorist supporting organizations," is also on the schedule for Monday.

According to CNN, "more than 300 projectiles – including around 170 drones and over 120 ballistic missiles – were fired toward Israel in an immense aerial attack overnight" on Saturday.

Iran reportedly launched then attack in response to a suspected Israeli strike on Iran's embassy Syria.

The missile attack has thrown the foreign aid debate to the forefront in Congress. The House has not yet voted on a Senate-passed foreign aid package that would provide $14 billion to Israel and $61 billion to Ukraine as well as funding for Taiwan and humanitarian efforts in Gaza.
