Prevent US military intervention in Venezuela – YES
H.R.1004 was introduced to the House by Representative Cicilline of Rhode Island and has been co-sponsored by several Massachusetts Representatives. The Senate equivalent of this bill is S.J.Res.11 which was introduced by Senator Merkley of Oregon and is cosponsored by both Massachusetts Senators. These bills block funds for an intervention and prohibit the administration from taking military action in Venezuela without Congressional approval. Here is Rep. Cicilline’s press release on the bill.
