The article focuses on two legislative bills introduced in the U.S. Congress that could help in pressuring Iran to end its pursuit of nuclear weapons. A legislation introduced by U.S. Representatives Mark Kirk and Rob Andrews calls for the U.S. and its allies to block Iran from receiving gasoline imports if it continues to violate UN Security Council resolutions. Another bill, the Justice for Marine Corps Families-Victims of Terrorism Act, would make it possible for victims of terrorism to collect court-ordered damages. The act would allow the U.S. government to seize Iranian assets in the U.S.
