WASHINGTON - Two weeks after efforts to kill the Iran nuclear deal failed in the U.S. Congress, lawmakers were still developing legislation on Thursday seeking to influence, or undermine, the international agreement.

The House of Representatives voted 251 to 173 on Thursday for a measure that would bar President Barack Obama from waiving any sanctions on Iran under the pact until $40 billion has been paid to Americans deemed to be victims of Iranian-backed terrorism.

The measure passed the Republican-led House largely along party lines, with Republicans in favor and Obama's fellow Democrats opposed.
