Dodd introduces bill to cap U.S. troop levels in Iraq
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Connecticut, is hoping to become a strong voice against President Bush's plan to increase U.S. troops in Iraq.

The presidential candidate introduced legislation Tuesday that put a limit on the number of troops in Iraq at about 132,000.

Under Dodd's bill any additional troops sent to Iraq would require congressional approval.

It is currently unclear how many of Dodd's Democratic colleagues will support the measure and whether it will be debated on the Senate Floor.
