"Washington (CNN)The House of Representatives will vote Wednesday on a War Powers resolution that aims to rein in presidential authority to use military action against Iran without congressional approval.
The resolution, introduced by Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat, passed the Senate last month with bipartisan support despite President Donald Trump’s vocal opposition to the measure.
If it passes the House Wednesday afternoon, which it is expected to do, the measure will be sent to the White House, which issued a veto threat against it when it came up in the Senate.
Congress is not expected to have enough votes to override a presidential veto. But passage of the measure by both chambers will nevertheless serve as a rebuke of the President and highlight congressional support for efforts to check the executive branch’s war-making power.
The President warned the Senate not to green-light the measure last month ahead of its passage, tweeting, "It is very important for our country’s security that the United States Senate not vote for the Iran War Powers Resolution," and adding, "If my hands were tied, Iran would have a field day.”"
