WASHINGTON—Today, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) sent a letter to President Obama asking him to halt any plans for new concessions to Iran during his final days in office. The letter, which comes amid reports about the administration taking additional steps to bolster Iran’s economy, also encourages President Obama to sign bipartisan legislation currently pending in the Senate to extend the Iran Sanctions Act for ten years.

The lawmakers write:

“We respectfully request that your administration take no further actions designed to bolster international investment in Iran, or otherwise change or alter the existing sanctions regime within international organizations through the use of waivers or through administrative actions to include the issuance of new regulations, general licenses, frequently asked questions, or other guidance.”
