Congress to extend Iran sanctions

The Hill:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that the Senate will vote to extend sanctions on Iran sanctions before the end of the year.

"Yes, we are going to pass that," he told reporters, asked about the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA). "We're going to take up the House bill. I think it's already held at the desk. And we're going to pass it."

The House voted Tuesday 419-1 to extend the ISA, currently set to expire before 2017, for 10 years.
I suspect that even tougher sanctions could be imposed after Trump takes office.  With the overwhelming support of the sanctions extension, it will be difficult for Obama to sustain a veto.
