|WASHINGTON, D.C. – This afternoon, the United States House passed the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015. The bill passed by a vote of 400-25.
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, responded:
“The Administration has backed the voice of the people – the legislative branch – into a corner and has left them with two options: do nothing or fight their way out. Today, the House echoed what the Senate proclaimed earlier: Congress has a role in the process and should absolutely have the chance to review any deal made with Iran regarding its nuclear capabilities.
“The Pew Research Center found that 62 percent of respondents believe that Congress should have final authority in approving any agreement made between the U.S. and Iran. As the national security of the U.S. and our ally Israel are paramount, this legislation allows Congress the ability to reject any deal that is made.
“If nothing else, this clearly demonstrates the unwavering support for Israel by Members of Congress and their constituents.
“CWALAC urges President Obama to quickly sign this legislation when it reaches his desk.”
Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee is the legislative arm of Concerned Women for America, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization with 500,000 participating members across the country, over 450 Prayer/Action Chapters and Home Teams, 600 trained leaders, and over 30 years of service to our nation.
