United States Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is turning the Senate toward passing tougher sanctions against Iran’s regime, The Hill reported late on Monday.

The Kentucky Republican teed up a procedural vote for Wednesday on the Iran Destabilizing Activities Act. If lawmakers drag out debate on the legislation, a final vote could take place as late as Thursday evening.

The Iran legislation has broad bipartisan support after months of negotiations and easily cleared the Foreign Relations Committee in late May. It would expand sanctions targeting the Iranian regime’s ballistic missile development, support for terrorism any transfer of weapons and human rights violations.
