Key Democratic senator says wait until June for Iran sanctions bill

Democratic US Senator Sherrod Brown, the top Democrat on the US Senate Banking Committee, on Thursday called on panel members to wait until June to pass legislation to toughen sanctions on Iran, in order to give world powers and Tehran time to negotiate. “Congress should have the collective patience to wait until the end of June to see whether our negotiators can resolve the nuclear issue with Iran through diplomacy,” Brown said in his opening statement as the banking panel prepared to vote on a sanctions bill.
