Kaine Statement On House Passage Of Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today after the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to pass the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, of which Kaine is a lead cosponsor:

“I’m thrilled that overwhelming bipartisan majorities in both houses of Congress have now committed to a constructive process for review of a final nuclear agreement  with Iran.  It was an honor to work with Senators Corker, Cardin, Graham, Menendez and others to arrive at a compromise that many didn’t believe was possible at the outset of negotiations. The bill being sent to the President’s desk is proof that Congress can act in a bipartisan way to assert an appropriate Congressional role on a critical matter of foreign policy. I challenge my colleagues to demonstrate the same courage by passing an Authorization for Use of Military Force against ISIL.”
