AIPAC, which has been lobbying for the resolution’s passage, said the IAEA’s recent report on Iran’s nuclear activities is “alarming” and requires a “strong message” from Congress.

“The vast support for the draft shows that there is bipartisan concern about Iran,” said spokesman Josh Block.

Mr. Ackerman said he was in “discussions” with opponents of the draft to “clarify the language.”

The current House legislative session is scheduled to adjourn Friday. The Senate has not set a target date for adjournment.
