Today the Senate passed the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, legislation to give the American people a transparent look at any nuclear deal between the Obama Administration and Iran. U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a cosponsor of the bill, issued the following statement:

“Nebraskans understand two important points that Washington loses in political back-and-forth: first, a nuclear-armed Iran is absolutely unacceptable and, second, an agreement of this magnitude should be done by treaty.

“Unfortunately, the White House is ready to make a dangerous, back-room deal with Iran and suspend sanctions without consulting the American people through their representatives in Congress. While this legislation is far from perfect, it takes a small step in the right direction by forcing the Administration to show Nebraskans the concessions they’re making to Tehran.”
