Following the release of the new Government Accountability Office report on the efficacy of sanctions, Rep. Christopher Shays (R-CT) introduced on January 18 a new resolution, H.R. 5084, to require the Secretary of State to conduct ongoing assessments of the effectiveness of sanctions against Iran. H.R. 5084 was referred to the House Committees on Foreign Affairs, Financial Services, Oversight and Government Reform, Ways and Means, and Agriculture. The text of the resolution is not yet available, but I will post it when it is.
