Rep. Nolan Statement on Iran Deal

Jul 14, 2015
Press Release

U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan issued the following statement regarding today’s announcement of a final agreement with Iran:

“As I have said in the past, an agreement with Iran to prevent development of nuclear weapons is clearly preferable to doing nothing while Iran continues to develop nuclear weapons, or worse yet, launching a new war in the Middle East that would cost trillions of dollars and thousands of precious lives. Moreover, if Iran violates the agreement, the international sanctions that have crippled their national economy will snap back in place. That said, the agreement is more than 150 pages long, and I want to study it carefully before making a final judgment, as part of our Congressional responsibilities under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act.”
