WASHINGTON, DC—Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) issued the following statement regarding an agreement reached on Iran’s nuclear program:

“I will not support an agreement that jeopardizes the safety and security of Americans and our allies throughout the world. The goal of these negotiations was for Iran to give up the ability to produce nuclear weapons in exchange for sanctions relief. This agreement would simply delay Iran’s ability to produce a nuclear weapon, while also giving them access to conventional weapons. Furthermore, with sanctions lifted, the Iranian government will have the resources to continue to pursue its anti-American and anti-Israel agenda. This Administration was so concerned about building a legacy that it was incapable of walking away from what appears to be a bad deal.”
