Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) introduces the “Prevention of Unconstitutional War with Iran Act” to limit the ability of the Executive Branch to engage in “kinetic” military operations against Iran. The bill cites past statements and tweets by the President that to some indicate a ratcheting of tensions between the Trump Administration and Iran. If passed, the bill would make it so that military operations in or against Iran only receive funding if approved by Congress. The bill is co-sponsored by a number of Democratic Senators, as well as Republican Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).
