Sen. Feinstein seeks Iraq troop redeployment

This just in from the office of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who will speak on the Senate floor at 10:30 a.m. today to call for beginning the phased redeployment of U.S. Forces in Iraq.

She will urge support for an amendment she introduced with U.S. senators Carl Levin, D-Mich., Jack Reed, D-RI, and Ken Salazar, D-Colo., which calls for the beginning of a phased redeployment of forces from Iraq by the end of the year.

Feinstein will also appear on CNN’s “Larry King Live” at 6 p.m. tonight with eight Democratic women senators. The lawmakers will discuss “Checklist for Change,” a list of nine issues the Senate can take specific action on right now to improve the lives of Americans.
