MAHSA Act Incorporated Into House Foreign Aid Package

Today marks a significant moment in the advancement of human rights and accountability for the Islamic Republic as House Speaker Mike Johnson courageously added the original House text of the MAHSA Act into the fourth pillar of the House national security supplemental package: The “21st Century Peace through Strength Act”

NUFDI commends Speaker Johnson for his decisive leadership and for recognizing the profound connection between the fight for freedom in Iran and America’s core values and interests. By embedding the MAHSA Act in this vital funding bill, the U.S. House of Representatives sends a powerful message to the regime in Iran: the United States stands resolute against tyranny and in solidarity with the Iranian people.

We urge all members of Congress to support this historic legislation and we look forward to seeing the MAHSA Act become law.
