"Pompeo-Zeldin" Resolution on Iran Nuclear Deal Passes House of Representatives
Washington, DC –Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY 1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade Subcommittee and co-chairman of the House Republican Israel Caucus, announced today that the resolution he co-led in the House of Representatives with Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-KS 4), member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, passed the House by a vote of 245-186.
The resolution expresses the sense of the House that under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, passed by Congress and signed by the President earlier this year, Congress must be provided with the entire agreement before the 60-day Congressional review period is triggered. To date, Congress still has not received from the President the verification agreements entered into between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran. The resolution states that the President cannot waive statutory sanctions implementing the deal until after the review period concludes, which means that Congress must be provided with the entire agreement including any side agreements.
