House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) released a chamber's legislative agenda for next week showing that sanctions agains the three human-rights violators will be rolled into one "Russia, Iran, and North Korea Sanctions Act."
It's like one-stop shopping and be led by the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The text of the bill has not been posted by McCarthy.
The Republican-led Senate already overwhelmingly approved a bill that sanctions Russia, coming on the heels of the U.S. intelligence community mostly agreeing the Kremlin meddled in last year's presidential election whereby Donald Trump trounced Hillary Clinton and still is President of the United States of America and she isn't.

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Saturday that he would've preferred the House adopt the upper chamber's bill, but welcomed the effort.
"A nearly united Congress is poised to sent President Putin a clear message on behalf of the American people and our allies, and we need President Trump to help us deliver that message," Cardin said.
