Referred to Senate (sub)committee

This bill would require the secretary of state to deliver a report to Congress determining whether Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) met the criteria of a foreign terrorist organization (FTO), including a ‘detailed justification’ of which criteria, if any, it did not meet.

At the time of this bill’s introduction, the U.S. considered Iran a state sponsor of terrorism and had designated as an FTO the IRGC’s special unit known as the Quds Force.
