Boehner Aims to Move Iran Bill Before Negotiations Finish

Posted April 14, 2015 at 10:54am

As the Senate prepares to take up a bill that would let Congress reject a nuclear agreement with Iran, Speaker John A. Boehner reaffirmed Tuesday that he’s waiting for that bill with open arms.

“Congress absolutely should have the opportunity to review this deal,” Boehner said Tuesday. “We shouldn’t count on the administration, who appears to want a deal at any cost.”

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., has been leading the charge to give Congress the ability to review an Iranian nuclear agreement before it’s finalized. While the votes appear to be there for passage, Corker has been working to line up a veto-proof majority despite objections from President Barack Obama.
