The House and Senate are back in session next week, and lawmakers in both chambers plan to use the dwindling time before the July 20 deadline for a nuclear deal to hammer the Barack Obama administration on its negotiations with Iran.

The House Foreign Affairs and Senate Foreign Relations committees are both holding hearings on Iran next week, as Al-Monitor first reported June 4.
