On April 14, 2015, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will vote on legislation that would limit the White House’s ability to approve an Iran nuclear deal harmful to Israel and the free world. Ask your senator to support this bill!
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is expected to vote Tuesday on legislation US Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) authored that would allow Congress the option of rejecting any nuclear deal that the US administration might reach with Iran.
The bill, known as the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, would require President Obama to submit the final agreement over any Iran nuclear deal to Congress within 60 days to allow time for debates and a vote. In order for the Corker-Menendez bill to pass and obtain a veto-proof majority, 67 senators must vote in favor of the bill. We need your help in ensuring this bill is passed.
The dangerous and deceptive nuclear deal negotiated between Iran and the P5+1 nations must not move forward unless it is drastically improved and redesigned to prevent Iran from going nuclear. As the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) points out, “the American people overwhelmingly expect congressional review of any nuclear agreement with Iran, according to three new polls.”
The Framework Iran Nuclear Deal is a Bad Deal
Prime Minister Netanyahu recently explained why he is concerned about the current understandings reached between the P5+1 and Iran. “Iran insists on maintaining its formidable nuclear capabilities with which it could produce nuclear bombs. Iran insists on removing all sanctions immediately. And Iran refuses to allow effective inspections of all its suspect facilities. At the same time, Iran continues its unbridled aggression in the region and its terrorism throughout the world.”
The Corker-Menendez bill would require Obama to submit any final agreement reached with Iran to Congress within five days. It would require Obama to send a report that explains the extent to which the Secretary of State will be able to verify that Iran is complying with the deal. The bill also would require the White House to certify that the agreement does not jeopardize US national security, including preventing Iran from pursuing nuclear-related military activities.
