WASHINGTON -

Key senators are crafting legislation to reinstate all sanctions and introduce new ones if Iran doesn't roll back its nuclear program.

In doing so, they're brushing aside the Obama administration's fears about upending the diplomatic momentum.

Legislative aides say Republican Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois and Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey are leading the effort.

They hope the bill will be ready when lawmakers return Dec. 9 from recess.

The Kirk-Menendez bill demands the administration certify every 30 days Iran's adherence to the agreement reached in Geneva this weekend, and that it's not engaged in terrorism against the U.S.

The administration has promised Iran no new sanctions during implementation of the six-month interim deal.

Aides demanded anonymity because they weren't authorized to talk by name on the matter.
