February 11, 2016 10:00 AM | 311 Cannon House Office Building

Given Iran’s longstanding relationships with international terrorist networks and continued hostility to the United States, this hearing will examine current Iranian terror proxy groups and threats to the Homeland and U.S. interests, as well as assess how those threats could change once Iran has greater access to the world economy and previously frozen funds.
