Royce Introduces Legislation in Disapproval of Iran Nuclear Agreement

Washington, DC – Representative Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, introduced a joint resolution Tuesday in disapproval of the nuclear agreement between the world powers and Iran.

“I do not relish in introducing this consequential legislation,” said Royce in an official statement Tuesday. “But the consequences for global security from this agreement are too great.  This deal gives up too much, too fast, to a terrorist state – making the world less safe, less secure, and less stable.”

In keeping with the Iran Nuclear Review Act which was signed into law last May, Congress will have until September 17th to review the international agreement with Iran that was announced on July 14th.  

If enacted, Royce’s joint resolution could cripple the nuclear agreement. The joint resolution must pass the House of Representatives and the Senate. President Obama has declared that he will veto the resolution if it reaches his desk in September. As such, opponents of the deal would need to get two-thirds of both chambers of Congress to override a presidential veto in order to preserve the implementation of the nuclear agreement with Iran.

While PAAIA supports efforts to pursue a diplomatic resolution to the decade-long stalemate over Iran’s nuclear program, we recognize the importance of ensuring that Iranian Americans are well-informed and aware of the positions held by their elected officials and others related to this matter.
