Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) called for vigilant oversight of Iran’s nuclear programs by introducing a resolution urging President Obama to immediately sign bipartisan legislation that would give Congress 30 days to review and approve any deal with Iran.

Senator Kyrillos introduced a resolution urging President Obama to sign bipartisan legislation that would give Congress 30 days to review and approve any deal with Iran.

“Congressional leaders on both sides of party lines have expressed serious concerns regarding Iran’s true intentions for its growing nuclear program,” said Senator Kyrillos. “The President cannot make these decisions alone. Congress must play a role in drafting any international agreement of this magnitude.”

The compromise legislation set to reach the President’s desk in the coming days allows the president to veto an attempt to stop a pact with Iran, but also gives Congress the opportunity to override such a veto by a two-thirds vote of both Houses of Congress. The legislation was prompted by an international preliminary agreement with Iran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for lifting sanctions against the country, so that the materials produced by Iran will not be used to develop nuclear weapons.

“A state sponsor of terror, armed with a nuclear weapon would certainly increase unrest in an already very volatile region,” said Senator Kyrillos. “I encourage my fellow legislators to show their support for this critical legislation.”
