    Ayotte Raises Concerns That Iran Deal Obligates U.S. to Help Iran Protect Nuclear Program from Sabotage

    "Iran is the world's worst state sponsor of terrorism and has persistently pursued the world's most dangerous weapon. There's a lot in this deal we should be worried about, including the outrageous and unacceptable provision that commits the U.S. to help protect Iran's nuclear program from sabotage as well as the dangerous agreement to lift the U.N. arms embargo and missile restrictions on Iran. Lifting these restrictions would only make it easier for Iran to purchase and develop missiles and weapons to threaten the U.S. and our allies, as well as to arm the murderous Assad regime and terrorist organizations like Hezbollah. It is deeply troubling that the White House has decided to ignore the military advice of Chairman Dempsey on an issue with such serious national security ramifications."

    Senate Passes Ayotte Measure Reauthorizing Export-Import Bank

    "It's encouraging that the Senate has voted on a strong bipartisan basis to renew the Export-Import Bank, which helps support American jobs and returns billions to the Treasury for deficit reduction. I'm hopeful that my colleagues in the House will act to renew Ex-Im so that New Hampshire companies continue to have access to this important source of financing," said Ayotte.

    Ayotte Supports Long-Term Highway Bill

    "Strengthening our roads, highways, and bridges is a priority for New Hampshire and the nation, and I supported the Senate's bipartisan, long-term highway bill that would provide states and contractors the certainty they need to begin new projects and hire workers. I also worked to include provisions specifically focused on New Hampshire transportation priorities - like preventing drug-impaired driving, allowing the establishment of state infrastructure banks, and protecting motorcyclists' rights," said Ayotte. "It's disappointing that the House did not take up our long-term bill and instead passed another short-term patch. While I supported this temporary extension to ensure projects can move forward, Congress must agree on a long-term bill that responsibly funds our transportation needs."

    NH Retailers Honor Ayotte as 'Hero of Main Street'

    "I'm honored to receive this award, and I was glad to meet today with members of New Hampshire's retail industry," said Ayotte. "Decisions made on Capitol Hill have a real impact on Main Street businesses, and as a member of the Commerce and Small Business Committees, I'll continue my efforts to create a better economic climate for New Hampshire retailers to grow and thrive. That includes working to cutting Washington red tape that discourages growth and reforming our complex tax code."

    Ayotte, McCaskill, Heller, Gillibrand Joint Statement on Senate Campus Sexual Assault Hearing

    "We have a responsibility to make sure colleges and universities keep our students safe, and must act on the failure to properly address campus sexual assault. Thanks to the survivors who have come forward and to a growing body of research, we know sexual assaults happen on campuses large and small, urban and rural, private and public. We also know that the lack of uniform standards for filing reports or initiating investigations has contributed to cases being swept under the rug at the expense of the entire campus community."

    Ayotte Renews Call for Increased Efforts to Combat Lyme Disease

    "In 2013, New Hampshire had the second highest incidence rate of Lyme disease in the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Especially during the summer months, families in Manchester and across the Granite State must be vigilant about protecting themselves from Lyme and tick-borne diseases, which are dangerous if untreated. I commend Mayor Gatsas for bringing awareness to this problem, and I will continue to push bipartisan legislation I helped introduce that would improve prevention and treatment methods related to these public health threats."

    Ayotte to Chair Subcommittee Hearing Highlighting Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Best Practices

    "Portsmouth Naval Shipyard's innovative practices have improved performance and reinforced the shipyard's reputation as the Navy's center of excellence for fast attack submarine maintenance, modernization, and repair. Based on his decades of experience, Paul has played a key role in that effort, and I look forward to hearing his testimony," Ayotte said. "This hearing provides a valuable opportunity to highlight the shipyard's value to our naval readiness and to identify the impressive initiatives developed there that can serve as a model for DoD to emulate. I will continue to use my position on the Senate Armed Services Committee to advocate for Portsmouth as an irreplaceable national security asset."

    Ayotte Helps Introduce Legislation to Improve Prevention and Treatment of Eating Disorders

    "I am proud to work with Senators Klobuchar, Capito, and Baldwin on legislation to bring greater public awareness to the dangers of eating disorders as well as help health care professionals and school personnel better recognize behaviors that may lead to or signal the presence of an eating disorder," said Senator Ayotte. "Women and men with eating disorders also deserve the same level of care that is available to individuals who are suffering from medical conditions and other mental health illnesses. Our bill would use existing funds to better support the 45,000 Granite Staters who are struggling with an eating disorder."
