Bipartisan letter to Obama on Iran Deal | 250 Members of Congress backing up 47 Senators

As reported by The Washington Examiner:

A bipartisan majority of House lawmakers have written a letter to President Obama backing up the letter 47 GOP senators controversially addressed to Iran on Monday with dire warnings about the impending nuke deal.

Some 250 members had signed the House letter by Friday afternoon, a clear majority of the chamber.

Its authors, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Eliot Engel of New York, are still gathering more signatures but will send the letter to Obama soon.

“Should an agreement with Iran be reached, permanent sanctions relief from congressionally mandated sanctions would require new legislation,” they wrote. “In reviewing such an agreement, Congress must be convinced that its terms foreclose any pathway to a bomb, and only then will Congress be able to consider permanent sanctions relief.”
