House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: August 24, 2015 04:24 PM
From: Representative Matthew E. Baker and Rep. Daryl D. Metcalfe, Rep. Mark B. Cohen
To: All House members
Subject: A resolution urging the Congress of the United States to reject the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action relating to Iran's nuclear program.
In May 2015 Congress enacted the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 to establish an approval process for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran’s nuclear program. This Act gives Congress 60 days from the date of to review and approve or disapprove the Plan’s nuclear deal. Members of Congress are lining up on both sides of this issue. President Obama has indicated that he will veto any resolution passed by Congress that rejects the deal.

Recent news reports indicate that members of Congress from both parties are concerned with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and its potential negative impact on the security of the United States. We agree that the plan creates unacceptable risks for the United States, as well as for Israel and many other nations around the world.

Additionally, we are concerned that Iran will reap many benefits from the Plan, while being subject only to voluntary restrictions relating to the development of its nuclear capacity. Also alarming is that the lifting of sanctions could result in additional financial resources for terrorist organizations and activities.

If you share these concerns, please consider joining us in cosponsoring this resolution calling on Congress to disapprove of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and, if necessary, override the President’s promised veto of a disapproval resolution.

I hope you join me in co-sponsoring this important resolution. Thank you for your interest and support.
