This is the September 26, 2018 hearing titled "Administration Goals for Major Sanctions Programs" held before the House Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade of the Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Andy Barr: "The Financial Services Committee has repeatedly made clear that sanctions are meaningful in the context of achieving particular goals. The committee has shown it is not averse to providing Treasury with the toughest authorities available, but we remain cautious when it comes to measures that fail to truly advance our policy objectives. In other words, our sanctions, like other government programs, have to be held accountable for results, and results are measured not merely in the number of designations by Treasury but by behavioral change on the part of foreign persons. Treasury's role in sanctions policy is central, not merely in implementation but in agenda setting as well." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Marshall Billingslea.
