Ensuring Congress Has a Voice in America’s Foreign Policy

“With today’s strong bipartisan vote, the Administration should see that it must not endorse a final agreement that unshackles the Iranian war machine.”

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 1191, the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act.

“Today I voted to give Congress a clear voice in any action to end sanctions on Iran. The toughest sanctions against Iran were imposed by the Congress and I’ll work with my colleagues to ensure they are not lifted without Congressional approval. As long as Iran remains a sponsor of terrorism, dedicated to the destruction of Israel, there should receive no economic relief. Already the proposed agreement is setting off an arms race in the Middle East, with Iran’s Sunni Arab neighbors scrambling to procure bigger and more powerful weapons. With today’s strong bipartisan vote, the Administration should see that it must not endorse a final agreement that unshackles the Iranian war machine.”

“Today I was also proud to vote for the Hezbollah International Financing Prevention Act of 2015, which would lock out of the international finance system the banks, broadcasters and internet providers who cooperate with the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorists in spreading their ideology and violence throughout the world.”
