Several Republican and Democratic Senators are nearing an agreement on new sanctions for Iran despite White House opposition.
That's coming from a Senate source familiar with the discussions.
The source says the new sanctions would begin in six months.
They would ban Iran from having any enriched uranium but allow the country to have nuclear power for commercial use, as long as it is monitored by the international community.
The move comes just weeks after Iran agreed to limit its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions that have crippled the country's economy.
The temporary deal will last six months, but world leaders hope it will pave the way to a long-term guarantee that Iran won't produce nuclear weapons.
The Obama Administration says new sanctions could sour the deal.
