Rubio, Colleagues Applaud House Passage of SHIP Act

Nov 6, 2023 | Press Releases

As Iranian oil sales to China’s genocidal regime continue to fund the Ayatollah’s ability to repress Iranian protestors and finance its proxies Hamas and Hezbollah, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the bipartisan and bicameral companion legislation to Rubio’s Stop Harboring Iranian Petroleum (SHIP) Act.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) applauded the House’s passage of his companion legislation, which would sanction illicit purchases of Iranian oil and hold the regime’s enablers accountable. 

  • “Our nation’s foreign adversaries must know they will face consequences for empowering other regimes that are anti-democratic and anti-American. We must enact and then rigorously enforce this bill so that those who are enriching themselves through the sale of sanctioned oil, or linked with its illicit trade, are held accountable.” – Senator Rubio

Joining Senator Rubio in cosponsoring this legislation were Senators Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Jacky Rosen (D-NV), John Hoeven (R-ND), Rick Scott (R-FL), John Barrasso (R-WY), Katie Boyd Britt (R-AL), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Josh Hawley (R-MO), John Boozman (R-AR), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Susan Collins (R-ME), Mike Braun (R-IN), John Thune (R-SD), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Roger Marshall (R-KS), John Cornyn (R-TX), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Pete Ricketts (R-NE), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Tedd Budd (R-NC), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Jerry Moran (R-KS), and Eric Schmitt (R-MO).
