House votes to curtail Trump’s Iran war powers, setting up veto fight

The House Wednesday passed a resolution to curb President Trump’s ability to wage war against Iran. The war powers measure passed 227 to 186 requires Trump to win approval from Congress before engaging in further military action against Iran. The Senate has already passed the resolution last month. It will now be sent to the White House, where Trump is expected to veto it.
