House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy says the House will act after the Senate on legislation giving Congress the power to review an emerging Iran nuclear deal.

McCarthy told reporters on Monday that he spoke with Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee earlier in the day. The majority leader said he told Corker that if the Senate approves the bill, the House will vote on it.

Corker is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which will consider the legislation on Tuesday afternoon. Republicans and several Democrats maintain that Congress should have a say on an international deal with Tehran to curb its nuclear program.

The White House has warned that the bill could scuttle the delicate negotiations, and President Barack Obama has threatened a veto.
