Washington, D.C. – This morning on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) called on the Senate to quickly resolve a constitutional issue with S. 722 (An Act to Provide Congressional Review and to Counter Iranian and Russian Governments’ Aggression) so that the House can take it up. Video and key excerpts below.

“Well, now that the Senate has some time on its hands, it should fix the constitutional problem in the bill. As you know… [a] solution was suggested by the [House] Ways and Means Committee….  [It’s] an easy thing for the Senate to fix. They need to fix it now and send it back to the House so that we can pass it…”

“We need to send this message to Putin and to Russia that there will be consequences for their intervention in undermining democracies around the world.”
