THE PLANK OCTOBER 26, 2009
In the next step towards turning the screws on Iran, two key congressional committees will debate companion bills this week targeting Iran's gasoline imports, a Hill source tells me. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Howard Berman will mark up that committee's bill on Wednesday. Chris Dodd will hold a markup of a Senate Banking Committee bill the next day.
That might help Iran make up its mind about our latest nuclear offer.
