Kaine to Discuss War Powers at T.C. Williams

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) is scheduled to meet with JROTC cadets at T.C. Williams High School on Friday afternoon.

The senator, who’s a member of the Armed Services and Foreign Relations Committees, “will talk to students about his efforts to more clearly define the roles of Congress and the President in making our nation’s most important decision – whether to send our servicemembers into harm’s way,” according to a media alert.

The visit comes at a time of tensions and talk of war — but recent deescalation — between the U.S. and Iran. The House of Representatives is set to vote on a war powers resolution later today, with a goal of limiting actions President Trump can take against Iran.

“For years, Kaine has been the leading voice in Congress raising concerns over Presidents’ efforts to expand the use of military force without congressional authorization,” Kaine’s press office noted. “Last week, Kaine introduced a war powers resolution to force a debate and vote in Congress to prevent further escalation of hostilities with Iran.”
