8 of 9 Arizona Reps Vote To Review Eventual Iran Nuclear Deal

The House of Representatives today overwhelmingly passed a bill to review any eventual agreement with Iran about their nuclear program.  Among Arizona's nine Representatives, only Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-CD3) did not vote for it; he did not cast a vote*.

The House vote was 400-25.  The Senate had previously approved this plan (98-1), so it now goes to the President's desk.  President Obama is expected to sign the measure, which gives Congress the right to review the deal and decide on whether or not to lift some of the economic sanctions against Iran.  Here is the full text of the bill.

*Grijalva did participate in the roll call votes immediately before and after this vote.
