McConnell Pushes Forward on Iran, Trade

[jwp-video n=”1″]

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday said the Senate would move forward with legislation on an Iran nuclear deal and Trade Promotion Authority after voting on a GOP budget resolution, rebutting Minority Leader Harry Reid one day after Reid said he would block a trade bill until the Senate addressed highway funding and surveillance reauthorization bills. McConnell is aiming for “a few more amendments” on the Iran legislation but did not say how soon he would file cloture on the measure. “We’re still hoping there’s a way forward that will give some of our members an opportunity to have votes on some of their amendments, but we anticipate finishing the Iran bill very soon,” he said.
