US House passes bill seeking Iran deal clamp-down

WASHINGTON - The House of Representatives passed legislation on Wednesday to restrict President Barack Obama's ability to lift sanctions on Iran, which the White House has promised to veto as an effort to kill the landmark nuclear agreement reached last summer.
