Washington, DC – Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA) and ten of her colleagues are renewing a push to establish a Special Envoy to Iran who would lead efforts to pursue a diplomatic resolution to the nuclear dispute, prevent war, and support human rights.

The legislation, which was reintroduced last week, calls for the President to use all diplomatic means to resolve the nuclear dispute and rules out the use of military force without Congressional authorization.
