The P5+1 Nuclear Negotiations with Iran are approaching their extended deadline of July 7th. The final agreement should ensure that Iran does not attain weaponized nuclear capabilities. If we end up with an accord that would allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon, such capacities could pose a threat to the United States as well as Israel, the Middle East, and the rest of the world. Therefore, any final agreement must meet the following benchmarks: restrict Iran’s nuclear enrichment ability and limit its nuclear research for decades; dismantle or substantially modify Iran’s existing nuclear infrastructure; contain nuclear sanctions relief mechanisms that would lift sanctions upon verified compliance of the agreements, and snap back into place should any violations be discovered; disclose Iran’s history of nuclear weapons programs; and include a robust and intrusive inspections regime that verifies Iranian compliance with nonproliferation guidelines. An Iran with any nuclear weapons is a non-starter. Were Iran to attain such nuclear weapons capabilities, other countries may feel compelled to attain similar capabilities – leading to a new arms race and threatening the globe’s progress towards nuclear nonproliferation. I will continue to monitor the discussions and I urge all parties to secure a deal that prevents a nuclear armed Iran. I look forward to reviewing the final accord once it is sent to Congress.

I attended the Downey Chamber of Commerce’s monthly networking mixer, hosted by Porto's Bakery and Café. I enjoyed catching up with Chamber Executive Director Gail Courtney, new President Cindy Kovach (who represents U.S. Bank), President-Elect Laurie Tyler (from the Financial Partners Credit Union), and many other Chamber members. It was a very fun event -- and Betty Porto and her staff made sure that it was a delicious one, too!
