Senate (54Y-46N) Passes S.J Res. 7

The United States Senate passed a War Powers Resolution to curtail United States’ military assistance to the Arab-led coalition in Yemen. The body had passed a similar bill during the 115th Congress, and due to rules of Senate procedure was unable to consider H.J Res 37 after it passed the House earlier this year.

Up next, the Senate version of this resolution will go to the House, where it is expected to pass. If so, the measure will go to the President, who is anticipated to veto the War Powers Measure. The bill was sponsored by Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Chris Murphy (D-CN) and Mike Lee (R-UT) among other co-sponsors.
