Hirono: Senate’s Bipartisan Compromise Is A Step Forward To Prevent Iran From Obtaining Or Developing A Nuclear Weapon

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator Mazie K. Hirono, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement after the Senate voted 98-1 to pass the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015:

“The bipartisan compromise that passed the Senate today is a step forward in reaching an eventual diplomatic solution that prevents Iran from obtaining or developing a nuclear weapon. I’m confident that while this legislation won’t interfere with the President and Secretary Kerry’s ability to negotiate a diplomatic solution, it also ensures Congress has ample authority to review and oversee of the implementation of the agreement.”
