Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL), is an original co-sponsor of H.R. 3199, To prohibit statutory sanctions relief by the United States with respect to Iran unless the Senate provides its advice and consent to ratification of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. This bill, introduced by Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA), would not allow the Administration to lift sanctions on Iran unless the Senate gives its consent under Article II Section 2 of the Constitution, which requires a two-thirds vote in the upper chamber.

"The Administration's agreement with Iran is a bad deal," Palmer said. "It does not prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. Even if it is executed perfectly, and Iran acts in good faith -- both of which are doubtful - it only delays their efforts. The agreement also lifts the conventional arms embargo, which was not part of the original purpose of the negotiations. When combined with billions of dollars in sanctions relief, this agreement will allow for Iran to continue to be the world's leading sponsor of terrorist organizations."Rep.
