The House passed two measures Thursday to limit President Donald Trump’s war powers, as Politico reported.
One would require congressional authorization to go to war with Iran, and the other revokes the 2002 authorization to use military force in Iraq, which multiple administrations have used to justify overseas activities.
A handful of Republicans joined most Democrats on the two measures.
The White House has promised to veto the bills, but Trump tweeted on Wednesday that lawmakers should “vote their heart.”
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) has said he has enough votes to force a vote on a similar, bipartisan resolution, but the Senate is not considering legislation while it is in session as an impeachment court.
