Another Sanctions Bill Anyone?

Apparently there are not enough sanctions bills already being considered by Congress. On Friday, August 3, Rep. Darrell E. Issa (R-CA) introduced H.R. 3390, to impose sanctions on Iran and on other countries for assisting Iran in developing a nuclear program, and for other purposes. The bill was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs in addition to the Committees on Financial Services, Ways and Means, Oversight and Government Reform and Intelligence.

I will post the bill when it is available. In the meantime, here is an interesting post from Jim Lobe regarding pressure on the American Enterprise Institute by members of its Board for supporting sanctions and divestment.
