Senate Passes Bill to Give Congress a Say on Iran Nuclear Deal

The Senate has passed a bipartisan bill to give Congress a chance to review -- and possibly reject -- any final nuclear deal with Iran. Thursday's vote was 98-1. The vote follows months of wrangling over the legislation while the U.S. and five other nations negotiated with Iran. Senate passage was a victory for lawmakers who succeeded in muscling their way into the Obama administration's talks with Iran. The legislation would block President Barack Obama from waiving congressional sanctions against Iran for at least 30 days while lawmakers review any final nuclear deal.
