Washington: The nuclear deal is making news and causing concerns.

The senate foreign relation committee took the markup, which is necessary for legislation to be voted in the senate.

Both, the house and the senate are to end their respective congressional session. That means there are only about 48 hours for the both houses to act on the proposal.

Given the current financial crisis, that becomes priority one for lawmakers.

So it is really up in the arm whether a vote can happen in two days.

It is really unlikely that the powerful Democrat senator, Berman is still holding out some reservations against the deal. Our correspondent Prerna Kumar reports from Washington.
