Thirteen Republicans joined 235 Democrats in the House late on Wednesday in voting a bill under the War Powers Act that effectively puts an end to USA military role in Yemen.
If passed, the resolution would direct President Donald Trump to remove all United States forces from Yemen within 30 days unless Congress gives its approval for military deployments to the country.
The US House of Representatives has approved a resolution calling for the withdrawal of US armed forces from Yemen and ending support for the Saudi-led coalition's campaign in the country.
The Senate is expected to vote on the resolution within 30 days.
A previous version of the resolution passed the Senate by 56-41 in December.
US House Passes Resolution to End Involvement in Yemen War
The administration - and many of Trump's fellow Republicans in Congress - said the resolution was inappropriate because US forces had provided aircraft refueling and other support in the Yemen conflict, not combat troops.
If the resolution is not vetoed, it would effectively put an end to U.S. military role in Yemen. The US President threatened to veto such bill, also a first in Trump's presidency.
Two weeks ago, the White House issued a veto threat against the resolution, saying in a statement of administration policy that the "premise of the joint resolution is flawed" and that US assistance to the Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen is "limited".
Concerning the bill's potential impact on Yemen, Mr Heras argued that "this resolution will accomplish nothing to end hostilities between Saudi Arabia and the Houthis, and in fact, it may backfire".
The White House says the House resolution is "flawed" because US troops are not directly involved in military action in Yemen, where the coalition is fighting the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.
