WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) released the following statement after voting for the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act:
“Passage of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act is a critical step forward to ensure congressional review of any deal with Iran. It certifies that no congressional sanction can be lifted during the review period and safeguards congressional oversight of Iranian compliance. This enables the American people to have a voice.
“We must prevent a nuclear Iran which is a threat to our national security interests, our allies and partners in the region, and stability in the world. The bottom line is that Iran must never be allowed to develop a single nuclear weapon, and this legislation moves us one step closer to that goal.”
Senator Ernst is a cosponsor of the legislation and previously spoke on the Senate floor calling for congressional approval of any final deal with Iran. Watch here.
