Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today released the following statement in response to reports that the Obama Administration is close to reaching an agreement with Iran on its nuclear weapons program.

“From the very beginning of these negotiations, President Obama and Secretary Kerry placed far too much faith in the Iranian regime,” said LaMalfa. “Trusting Iran to adhere to the terms of this agreement is a fool’s errand. The lifting of sanctions will be a boon to Iran’s economy while the temporary limits on their nuclear weapons program are nowhere near adequate. I adamantly oppose this deal.”

Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
