The U.S. Senate passed a 10-year extension of sanctions against Iran Thursday, sending the measure to the White House for President Barack Obama to sign into law and delaying any potentially tougher actions until next year.Members of Congress and administration officials said the renewal of the ISA would not violate the nuclear agreement with Iran reached last year.Democrats who backed the accord said they did not believe the ISA extension violated the pact because it continued a sanctions regime that was already in place.Congress' action did not address the fate of the nuclear pact, which was opposed by every Republican in the Senate and House.
