    LaMALFA asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. LaMALFA. Mr. Speaker, this week it was revealed that Iran tested medium-range ballistic missiles. By doing so, Iran has now violated the nuclear deal that was agreed to over objection of a majority of this House in July, which calls on Iran to end its ballistic missile program for 8 years.

    Iran is also now in violation of two United Nations Security Council resolutions. Like many of my colleagues in the House, I opposed the Iran nuclear deal because of the likelihood that Iran would cheat and the Obama administration would refuse to hold them accountable and reimpose sanctions.

    So far, there has been no response from the Obama administration on snapping back the sanctions into place. Because of that, Iran will continue to enjoy more and more of the plus $100 billion in unfrozen assets that they have not been accessible to.

    If Iran is allowed to break the agreement without consequences, it will only encourage more bad behavior and unrest in the Middle East.
