Chairman Ros-Lehtinen on the hearing: “This hearing will review the President’s decision regarding the Iran nuclear deal and assess what decertification means for its future. Members will hear expert testimony and debate policy options for Congress’ consideration. This is also an opportunity to discuss weaknesses and loopholes in the nuclear accord. It is critical for U.S. national security and that of our allies that we identify ways to collaborate with our partners to strengthen the deal while also addressing the totality of Iran’s illicit activity.”
