Senate (54Y-46N) & House (247Y-176N) Pass S.J Res. 7

The United States House of Representatives passed S.J Res. 7, a previously passed Senate bill invoking the War Powers Resolution in order to curtail U.S. support for the Saudi-led Arab Coalition in the war in Yemen. This marks the first time in U.S. history that both legislative chambers passed the same iteration of a War Powers Resolution. The bill’s passage came after months of procedural measures were used in order to prevent a given chamber from voting on the other chamber’s version of the legislation. Next the bill will go to President Trump, who is expected to veto the legislation according to the White House. (The Hill)
