Columbus Dispatch

With Sen. Sherrod Brown playing a key role, the Senate overwhelmingly approved an amendment Wednesday aimed at imposing sanctions on Russian individuals and sectors of their economy believed to have interfered with last year’s presidential election.

By a vote of 97-2, the Senate attached the amendment to a bill that imposes new sanctions on Iran for testing ballistic missiles. The Senate is expected to approve the bill as early as this week and send it to the House.
