While they praised the long-term diplomacy that brought the United States and Iran to a deal on nuclear weapons, members of Connecticut’s Washington delegation said more review is necessary before Congress grants its approval.

“The agreement announced this morning is the result of two years of negotiations over profoundly important issues of national security,” said U.S. Rep. James Himes  (D-4), in a prepared statement. “Under no circumstances should anyone rush to judgment. Those who do show their lack of bonafides. Over the coming days, I will review the full agreement, solicit input from experts and my constituents, and will support or reject the deal based on the best security interests of the United States, Israel, and our allies.”

Rep. John Larson (D-1) is even going so far as to hold a forum on Sunday, July 19, at the West Hartford Town Hall, to discuss the details of the agreement with voters.
