silverstein sjr iranCHICAGO  – State Senator Ira Silverstein (D-Chicago) introduced a resolution in the Senate this week to oppose the White House’s agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear program.

“While I acknowledge the complicated workings to negotiate a deal between the U.S. and Iran, I have grave concerns that this does not even approach strict enough oversight of Iran’s state-sponsored terrorism and their long-standing efforts to gain and build nuclear weapons.”

Silverstein echoes concerns of some in Congress who believe the deal’s inspection timelines, retention of much of Iran’s existing nuclear infrastructure and unclear sanctions to be imposed if Iran does not comply indicate the world will be no better off in 10 years with the deal.

“This resolution encourages the Illinois General Assembly to call on U.S. Senators and Representatives to oppose this inadequate deal and work for a new deal to prevent all routes to a nuclear bomb for Iran,” Silverstein said. “This is an urgent but very serious arrangement that needs to be stronger for the security of all nations.”

Senate Joint Resolution 31 has been filed; its first action will be taken in the Senate Assignments Committee.
