WASHINGTON - The Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed a bill on Tuesday with unanimous bipartisan support, and endorsement from the White House, that would provide Congress with the ability to review an agreement with Iran over its nuclear program.

The bill establishes a procedure for Congress to oversee the agreement, beginning with submission of the deal in its entirety by the president to the legislature within days of its signing. Congress would then have 30 days to review the agreement.

The bill was significantly revised to achieve the broad bipartisan backing sought by the committee's chairman, Bob Corker (R-Tennessee), who said at a hearing on the bill Tuesday afternoon that he was satisfied with the final product.
