Sen. Schumer to co-sponsor bill requiring Congressional review of Iran deal

(JNS.org) U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Thursday, March 26 announced he is co-sponsoring legislation that would require Congressional review of a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers. The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, sponsored by U.S. Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), stipulates that President Barack Obama must submit the text of a nuclear pact to Congress within five days of a deal being reached. The legislation also prohibits the President from suspending, waiving, or reducing sanctions against Iran for 60 days. “This issue is far too important – for the United States, for Israel, for the entire Middle East – for Congress not to have any ability to review a nuclear deal with Iran,” Schumer said.
