Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) put forward the No ICBMs or Drones for Iran Act on Thursday.

“The Biden administration seems content not to do anything to stop Iranian proxies from attacking American troops. But what will we do when Iran gets its hands on missiles that can reach America?” he said. “This legislation will strengthen necessary sanctions on Iran to better protect America and our allies from their current drone attacks and future missile attacks.”

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) has taken up the effort in the House of Representatives, introducing companion legislation.

“Iran is advancing their pursuit of intercontinental ballistic missiles, arming Hamas and Russia to the teeth with kamikaze drones, and providing its terrorist proxies with weapons that are being used to strike American forces in the Middle East,” she said. “This must stop.”
