“Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) introduced the No War Against Iran Act, which denies the Pentagon of any funds for unauthorized use of military force against Iran. A measure to prohibit funds for an unconstitutional war with Iran passed by a bipartisan 251-member vote in the House of Representatives last year, though it was later stripped from the National Defense Authorization Act enacted in December.
In the Senate, the No War Against Iran Act is cosponsored by Senators Schumer (D-N.Y.), Leahy (D-Vt.), Markey (D-Mass.), Wyden (D-Ore.), Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Baldwin (D-Wis.), Cantwell (D-Wash.), Warren (D-Mass.), Van Hollen (D-Md.), Harris (D-Calif.), Blumenthal (D-Conn.), and Merkley (D-Ore.).
Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) introduced a companion measure to defund unauthorized military action against Iran in the House of Representatives, with 58 cosponsors.”
