Senators Heller and Reid: Don’t sabotage nuclear deal with Iran

It’s been a year since the U.S., Iran, and international negotiators reached a historic deal on Iran’s nuclear program. I feel safer because of this deal, and I look to my senators, Senator Reid and Senator Heller, to speak out in support of it.

Since the deal, Iran has dramatically shrunk its nuclear program and submitted to the most comprehensive inspection regime ever negotiated. If the country makes a move to cheat on its commitments, we will know about it.

I’m concerned that attempts by members of Congress to pass new sanctions and other harsh legislation could sabotage the deal and reverse this progress. I hope that our senators will lead efforts to support the gains we’ve made and oppose any efforts to undermine the deal.
