The House was seen passing a bill (191-106) to limit the president’s ability to lift sanctions against Iran and financial institutions that do business with Iran.

Later, at the end of the House session, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) withdrew the vote results for the Iran sanctions legislation because more than 130 (actual total 137) members missed the vote. The vote would be held again when members returned January 26, 2015.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) warned members when he took office that long votes were holding up progress in the House. The House puts up a 15-minute clock, which is the minimum time for the vote, at the start of the vote. After the clock runs out, the majority leadership decides when to call the vote. Typically it lasts a half-hour or more as members make their way from meetings and their offices. This vote was 17 minutes. close
