WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has passed a bill that would give Congress greater oversight of the nuclear agreement with Iran. The 191-106 vote came less than 24 hours after Tehran detained 10 U.S. sailors who had drifted into Iranian territorial waters. They were later released. Republicans have seized on the incident as further evidence Iran can't be trusted. The White House says the bill could upend the nuclear agreement and that the president will veto the measure if it reaches his desk.

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A judge in a Massachusetts defamation suit against Bill Cosby has rejected a proposal to keep a significant amount of material out of the public eye. U.S. Magistrate Judge David Hennessy says the "blanket protective order" that Cosby's lawyers proposed isn't appropriate. But he says potentially sensitive material like Social Security numbers and bank accounts can be kept private, along with some other information disclosed in depositions. The seven women suing Cosby were seeking information that included his medical and sexual histories.

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — The mayor of Flint, Michigan says she appreciates the governor's order to activate the National Guard to help with the city's water crisis. But Mayor Karen Weaver says the city also needs federal assistance to cope with what she calls the "man-made water disaster." Flint's tap water became contaminated with too much lead after the city switched its water supply in 2014 to save money while under state financial management. About a half-dozen National Guard representatives arrived today and more are on the way to help distribute bottled water, filters and other supplies.

LEBANON, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire hospital that discovered its vaccines were stored at inconsistent temperatures is asking more than 800 children to get revaccinated. State health officials say the affected vaccines from Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital in Lebanon aren't harmful but might have lost some potency. The hospital is offering to revaccinate 827 patients at no cost to them or their insurance companies.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A specialty car manufacturer is recalling the limousine model involved in a 2013 fire that killed five nurses. It's unclear if Accubuilt's recall of about 1,000 limousines is a direct result of the fire in a 1999 Lincoln Town Car limo. The California Highway Patrol says the blaze broke out on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge because of a catastrophic failure of the rear suspension system.
