Topic: U.S. Senate passes Iran nuclear review bill, House up next


By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to pass a bill giving Congress the right to review, and potentially reject, an international nuclear agreement with Iran. The 98-1 vote sent the measure to the House of Representatives, which is expected to consider it as soon as next week. The White House has said President Barack Obama would sign it into law if it also passes the House, as expected. Republican House Speaker John Boehner issued a statement supporting the bill shortly after the Senate vote.
