Quotes from the news wire:

We are letting Iran export its oil to markets that we prevent our own companies from accessing, any deal that lifts sanctions on Iranian oil will disadvantage American companies unless we lift the antiquated ban on our own oil exports. And Murkowski’s committee held a hearing June 9 on a bill that she and Sen. Heitkamp, North Dakota Democrat, have co-sponsored on lifting the ban. However, a top Senate staff told FoxNews.com after the Iran deal was struck Tuesday that Murkowski has no intentions of holding up a major foreign policy vote or international trade legislation over lifting the ban, likely references to the Trans-Pacific Partnershippact being debated in Congress and the upcoming votes on the Iran nuclear deal. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said this spring that Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz does n’t think.
