No set schedule yet for U.S. vote on war powers resolution on Iran - Democrats

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senior U.S. House Democrats on Wednesday said there is no set schedule yet for voting on a war powers resolution that would limit President Donald Trump’s actions regarding Iran and that legislation is still being drafted.

Lawmakers are seeking to put a check on Trump’s power after he failed to inform Congress in advance of a U.S. drone strike that killed top Iran commander Qassem Soleimani last week.
