Dr. Bucshon's Statement on Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act
(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Thursday, Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. voted for the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, a bill that grants Congress an oversight role on any nuclear deal negotiated with Iran. The bill passed by a vote of 400 to 25 and now heads to President Obama’s desk for his signature.
“While this bill may not be perfect, the stakes are too high for Congress to capitulate our ability to disapprove a bad deal between the Administration and Iran,” said Bucshon. “Congress must have aggressive input on any negotiation and this bill is our only avenue to seize that opportunity.”
The bill passed the United States Senate by a vote of 98 to 1 on May 7, 2015.
