Congress Reintroduces War Powers Resolution to End War on Yemen

HeadlineJan 31, 2019

On Wednesday, lawmakers in both the House and Senate reintroduced a War Powers Resolution in an attempt to halt the unauthorized U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war on Yemen. California Congressmember Ro Khanna introduced the bill for the third time in three months. In December, before newly elected Democrats took control of the House, Republican leadership blocked a vote on the bill. In the Senate, lawmakers passed the resolution 56 to 41 in a historic vote last month.
