Senator Jim Webb has introduced legislation that would deny funding for the President to attack Iran without Congressional approval.
Webb has voiced concerns that the Bush administration believes the 2002 resolution authorizing force in Iraq applies to Iran as well. He says that he wants to prevent another unilateral attack.
"I am saying that we will not appropriate funds to move forward with a unilateral attack against Iran without the consent of the Congress" said Webb.
However Webb does say the amendment would allow for some exceptions. One example is that it would allow funding in the effort to stop Iranians from interfering in the Iraq war.
