House Passes H.J Res 37 (248Y-177N)

The House of Representatives has passed H.J Res. 37, a War Powers bill to remove American forces fighting hostilities in Yemen that have not been approved by Congress. An amendment was approved that ensures the agreement will not affect intelligence sharing between the United States and Saudi Arabia. Up next the Senate will likely consider the bill. Should the entire Congress successfully invoke the War Powers Resolution, it would be unprecedented since the enactment of the resolution in 1973.
