The vote came after fresh U.S. sanctions in July against Iran, targeting Tehran's missile programme.
In a session this morning, 240 Iranian lawmakers voted for the bill to confront "America's terrorist and adventurous actions" in the region.
Iran's parliament has overwhelmingly voted to increase spending on Tehran's ballistic missile programme and the elite Revolutionary Guards in retaliation for new sanctions imposed by the United States.
Tehran says this violates the 2015 nuclear deal, which US President Donald Trump has called "the worst ever" and threatened to tear up.
As some lawmakers chanted "Death to America", Iran's parliament on August 13 granted its initial approval for increased funding of Teheran's missile program and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force.
"The bill is backed by the foreign ministry and the government and is part of measures by the JCPOA supervision committee to confront the recent US Congress law", deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi.

He praised the bill, saying it "was designed wisely so that it does not violate the (nuclear deal) and provide excuses for opposing sides".
According to the bill, Iran's combined government and military apparatus is tasked with devising a comprehensive strategic plan to counter the "US threats" within a period of six months following ratification of the bill. "Iran boasts potential and actual options to confront hostile USA actions".
He further said American officials should be aware that the legislation was just the first step against anti-Iran measures.
