A majority of the House of Representatives including 11 committee chairs and ranking members, and 113 subcommittee chairs and ranking members are co-sponsoring the resolution, which:

(1) condemns past and present Iranian state-sponsored terrorist attacks against United States citizens and officials, as well as Iranian dissidents, including the Iranian regime’s terror plot against the “Free Iran 2018 the Alternative” gathering in Paris;

(2) calls on relevant United States Government agencies to work with European allies, including those in the Balkans, where Iran has expanded its presence, to hold Iran accountable for breaching diplomatic privileges, and to call on nations to prevent the malign activities of the Iranian regime’s diplomatic missions, with the goal of closing them down, including the Iranian embassy in Albania;

(3) stands with the people of Iran who are continuing to hold legitimate and peaceful protests against an oppressive and corrupt regime; and

(4)recognizes the rights of the Iranian people and their struggle to establish a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear republic of Iran.

The Iranian people will be inspired to know that the representatives of the American people hear their voice.

It [H. Res. 374] comes at a time when the Iranian opposition to the regime, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, is steadily gaining momentum, and has thus become the main target of the regime’s global terrorism.

— Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA), main sponsor of the resolution

The people of Iran are in the street screaming ‘enough is enough’ We must continue to advocate for an Iran that is non-nuclear, democratic, secular, and free.

— Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), chief Democratic co-sponsor of the resolution
