Senate Republicans are hoping to rally support from their Democratic colleagues to push through a bill that would ensure lawmakers have the final word on whether or not a nuclear agreement with Tehran goes through.

Democratic support will come with a price, of course: they want to see an amendment that will ensure passage by the June 30 final deadline. “Congress should have a vote, should weigh in,” said Senator Chris Coons (D-Del). “I’m looking for the administration to reach out and fully inform members of the committee.”


Republicans want to make sure sanctions are not lifted until Iran actually complies with the requirements of the agreement.

Officially, the White House is saying the president will veto the bill. “Our position has not changed,” press secretary Josh Earnest told Politico. “We believe that this is clearly the purview of the president.”
