Legislation that empowers the U.S. Congress to reject an emerging Iran nuclear pact is expected to sail through both houses of Congress, leaving President Barack Obama with the tough task of selling the deal to skeptical lawmakers.The bill is now likely to clear both houses of Congress.Earnest said the White House is not "particularly thrilled" about the legislation. He said the administration would withhold final judgment on the bill while it works its way through Congress, but that in its current form, Obama would sign it.The revised bill shortens from 60 to 30 days the time that Congress will have to review any final nuclear deal. During the congressional review period, Obama would be able to lift sanctions imposed through presidential action, but would be blocked from easing any of the sanctions imposed by Congress. While the White House and Congress made their way onto the same page with the bill, Obama's standoff with lawmakers over the Iran nuclear talks is far from over.
