With overwhelming support, the U.S. Senate passed a bill Thursday that would give Congress final approval on a potential deal with Iran.
Before the vote, Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, "This Congress is determined to pursue other avenues to address Iran's aggressive campaign of expansion and intimidation."
The legislation, which passed Thursday with a vote of 98-1, gives Congress 30 days to review and vote on any deal struck with Iran over the country's nuclear program. Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton was the only no vote on the bill.
