With a nuclear talks deadline around the corner and no deal in sight, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) said Thursday he will “definitely” reintroduce sanctions legislation on Iran in the next Congress.

“I think the Republicans will definitely bring it up. It’s a movie we’re going to see again,” Kirk said on Capitol Hill. “The Republican majority will be working with [Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)] about when the time is to come up for a vote on that.”

Kirk’s remarks come days ahead of a Monday deadline for international and Iranian negotiators to reach a comprehensive agreement aimed at preventing Iran from gaining a nuclear weapon.

The legislation, co-authored by Kirk and Sen. Bob Menéndez (D-N.J.), would automatically impose sanctions on Iran if it violates any final agreement or if walks away from the talks, and has gained the support of at least 15 Democrats.

Kirk said he was building towards a veto-proof majority in the House.
