Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) Introduces S.J Res 13

Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) introduced a joint resolution to repeal the Congressional authorizations that had been given to the Executive branch allowing Presidents to take military actions in 1991 in Kuwait and 2003 in Iraq. If passed, the resolution would formally end both of these wars.

In introducing the legislation Senator Kaine said repealing these authorizations will create an extra-hurdle for future Presidents to take military action, thusly allowing Congress to reassert its authority on matters of war and intervention.

The bill is co-sponsored by Marine veteran Senator Todd Young (R-IN).
