Like the similar Senate measure (see S. 868 of 3/26/15), this bill would establish a U.S. Treasury fund to support U.S. citizens who were held hostage in Iran between 1979 and 1981. It would also deposit into the fund 30% of any fines imposed on persons found to be violating sanctions on Iran, but the payout structure would be slightly different, and identical to the one outlined by the similar provision in S. 1635 of 6/18/15.
