Iran Sanctions Would Be Expanded Under U.S. Senate Bill

Twenty-six U.S. senators introduced a measure to impose further sanctions against Iran if it violates a six-month accord with the U.S. and other nations or fails to reach a final agreement curtailing its nuclear program.

Senators Robert Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, and Mark Kirk, an Illinois Republican, announced the action today in an e-mailed statement.
