Dear Friend of Israel,
U.S. Congress overwhelmingly passed the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions Accountability and Divestment Act of 2010 on June 24, by a vote of (408-8-1) in the House and (99-0) in the Senate.
This historic legislation is the toughest Iran sanctions bill ever to emerge from Congress.
To complement this legislation, members of the House of Representatives have now introduced The Iran Transparency and Accountability Act (ITA) of 2010 (H.R. 5833).
This new legislation would require companies to declare publicly sanctionable investments in Iran in their quarterly and annual reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The legislation is the next step to ensuring that there is sustained accountability in the implementation of Iran sanctions and the recently passed (CISADA).
Now is the moment to demonstrate leadership as a member of AIPAC, the only organization working to ensure critical American support for Israel in these uncertain times.
