U.S. Senate Will Challenge Obama On The Iran Nuclear Deal With A Vote

WASHINGTON — A Senate committee is expected to vote on a bill giving Congress a chance to weigh in on any final nuclear agreement that can be reached with Iran.
Despite a veto threat from President Barack Obama, there is strong bipartisan support for Congress to have a say in any deal the U.S. and its partners can negotiate to keep Iran from being able to develop nuclear weapons.
Sen. Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, says a vote is likely Tuesday, most likely on a tweaked version of the bill.
Lawmakers have sought changes, such as shortening from 60 days to 30 days the length of time that Congress would have to review any final deal that's reached.
