WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to limit debate on a bill that could give Congress the right to review, and possibly reject, an international nuclear agreement with Iran.

The 93-6 vote cleared the way for a vote, expected shortly, on whether to pass the legislation and send it to the U.S. House of Representatives, which is expected to consider it as soon as next week.
