Iran makes threats over proposed sanctions

IRAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Iranian lawmakers are threatening a nuclear speed up if Congress adds new sanctions.

More than a third of the government's parliament signed off on the legislation.

It would ramp up the country's efforts to enrich uranium by up to 60%.

The move comes less than a week after legislation was introduced in the U.S. Senate authorizing new economic sanctions if Iran breaches an interim agreement to limit its nuclear program.

The White House does not support the bill and says it undermines current negotiations.
