Congresswoman Lee Urges Congress to Join Majority of Americans in Supporting Iran Nuclear Deal
Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Barbara Lee spoke on the House floor urging her colleagues to support the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also known as the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Congresswoman Lee has long advocated for the use of diplomacy to rein in Iran’s nuclear program. In the 112th and 113th Congresses, Congresswoman Lee introduced the Prevent Iran from Acquiring a Nuclear Weapon and Stop War Through Diplomacy Act. This legislation sought to end the counter-productive “no contact” policy between U.S. and Iranian diplomats; it also called for the appointment of a high-level envoy to negotiate an agreement to end Iran’s pathways to a nuclear weapon.
Congresswoman Lee is a member of the Appropriations and Budget Committees, the Steering and Policy Committee, is a Senior Democratic Whip, former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus and co-chair of the Progressive Caucus. She serves as chair of the Whip’s Task Force on Poverty and Opportunity.
