House Again Passes Measure Prohibiting Exports of F-14 Parts

On a voice vote the U.S. House of Representatives today passed H.R. 1441, the Stop Arming Iran Act, a bill that prohibits the Department of Defense from selling any parts for F-14 Tomcat fighter aircraft, except for those in a museum or preserved for historical purposes. The bill also prohibits the U.S. Government from issuing any export licenses for any F-14 aircraft parts to a non-U.S. person or entity.

This is the second time that the House has voted on this bill. On May 17, 2007, the House voted to include the language in section 1049 of H.R. 1585, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008. That bill is currently pending in the Senate.

The Stop Arming Iran Act
is aimed at preventing Iran from obtaining spare parts for F-14s. While F-14 Tomcats were retired by the U.S. military in 2006, it estimated that Iran, which acquired 79 F-14s from the U.S. in the 1970s, still has several of the aircraft left in service.
