Press Release

(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Tuesday, Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement in response to letters sent by Governor Pence expressing his disapproval of the Iran Deal negotiated by President Obama: 

“This deal threatens the security of Americans at home, our allies around the world, and the sovereignty of states, like Indiana, that have put in place sanctions against Iran,” said Bucshon.  “Our state, and others across the country, should not be coerced by the federal government to do business with the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. I share the concerns of Governor Pence and intend to continue my work to stop this bad agreement.”

Governor Pence and 14 other governors sent a letter to President Obama in opposition to the Iran Deal and to ensure state-level sanctions are not superseded by the federal government.  Governor Pence also sent a letter to the Indiana Congressional Delegation urging a vote against the deal. Those letters can be found here.

On August 5th, Bucshon released a video outlining his opposition to the nuclear deal and encouraged Hoosiers to review the text and provide feedback. That video can be accessed by clicking here:

The House is expected to vote this week on H. J. Res. 64, a resolution disapproving of the agreement transmitted to Congress by the President on July 19, 2015, relating to the nuclear program of Iran.
