The Senate is considering a measure to block President Donald Trump from implementing a key part of his Iran nuclear deal with world powers.
Senators voted Wednesday to attach language to an appropriations bill to prevent the Trump administration from implementing the final part of the agreement, which would require Tehran to halt some of its uranium enrichment activities and halt its ballistic missile program.
The measure was introduced by Sens.
Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Marco Rubio (R.I.), Susan Collins (R.-Maine) and Lindsey Graham (R.) and was not introduced by any Republicans.
Trump signed the agreement with world leaders last month.
The House is set to vote on the measure Wednesday.
Republicans have been reluctant to oppose Trump’s effort to lift the sanctions on Iran, which was a major sticking point in the talks.
The Senate bill would also bar the White House from lifting the sanctions and limit the amount of money the United States can provide to Tehran.
The White House said Wednesday that it is working with Republicans to resolve the Iran sanctions bill, adding that it will be “a bipartisan effort.”
Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said the bill “does not do what Congress has asked and will not do.”
