Iran nuclear review bill cruises through House

The Iran nuclear review bill, which allows Congress a review period of any Iran nuclear deal reached with Iran, easily passed the House with no amendments on a vote of 400-25.

The House passed the measure without amending it, and Obama indicated earlier this month that he would sign the bill if it was not drastically changed in the House.

Obama and the P5+1 nations are currently negotiating a deal with Iran to reduce the country’s nuclear infrastructure and curb its ability to develop nuclear weapons. The final details of the agreement are expected to be finished by July, but lawmakers skeptical of Iran wanted more assurances that Congress would be able to influence the final deal.
