Congress is rushing to block President Barack Obama's administration from allowing Boeing aircraft sales to Iran following Donald Trump’s election.

The House Rules Committee has made action on the legislation its very first priority when Congress returns from recess on Nov. 14. The full House could then vote on the bill from Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Mich., as early as Nov. 16.
