Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin (D-MI08) introduced a War Powers Resolution to terminate the use of hostilities against Iran that have not been approved by Congress. The bill comes in response to the killing of Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani, which occurred at the direction of the President without Congressional approval. Should the bill be enacted, it will require that the U.S. discontinue military engagement with Iran until Congress declares war. The bill makes exceptions for military action directed at Al-Qaeda.
