Senate Approves Iranian Sanctions

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call File Photo
The Senate passed new Iranian sanctions today, overcoming an impasse last week when Republicans blocked a deal over language suggested by GOP Sen. Rand Paul that would have barred military intervention.

“When the Senate failed to pass the sanctions bill last week, I was concerned that the legislation was sending a mixed message to Iran,” he said in a statement. “However, I am very pleased we were able to strengthen the language in the bill which now sends an unequivocal message to leaders in Iran. The bill clearly indicates that all options are on the table when it comes to stopping Iran from obtaining a nuclear capability.”
