Congress set to adjourn without passing new Iran sanctions

Members of the House and Senate conference committee finished their work today to finalize the language on the defense authorization bill.  They did not include any new sanctions on Iran in the versions passed by either house of Congress, effectively ending (for this legislative session) the chance of another round of Iran sanctions being passed.
The conference report is posted at http://armedservices.house.gov/
