This resolution was drafted during informal negotiations between Rep. Ros-Lehtinen and Sen. Tim Johnson (D-SD), who were the principal authors of competing Iran sanctions bills in the House and Senate. Their compromises on sanctions in the negotiations over this measure were passed in the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012 (*H.R.1905 of 5/13/11). The resolution also contains a special provision stating that the House considers *H.R. 1905 to have been passed and its text replaced with that of Ros-Lehtinen and Johnson’s compromise bill. In effect, a vote for this resolution was also a vote for the final version of *H.R. 1905.
