WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican senators are insisting that the House and Senate sign off on any potential nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers or else sanctions on Tehran that had been temporarily lifted could kick back in. <br />
Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the top GOP senator on the Foreign Relations Committee, joined with four other senators Wednesday in introducing legislation that says President Barack Obama must submit any nuclear deal with Iran to Congress within three days. The House and Senate would then vote on the deal. <br />
If the president failed to submit the agreement, sanctions would be reimposed. <br />
The six world powers, including the United States, and Iran extended their negotiations to Nov. 24 after failing to reach a deal. <br />
Corker's legislation faces an uncertain fate in the Democratic-led Senate.
A blustery winter storm dumped snow and ice across the West on Wednesday, making driving treacherous in the mountains from California to the Rockies and forcing residents and party-goers in some usually sun-soaked cities to bundle up for a frosty New Year's.
Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, released Wednesday a list of 11 potential Supreme Court justices he plans to vet to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia if he's elected to the White House.
