Walz signs on to invoke War Powers

October 5, 2017

Rep. Walz has signed on to H.Con.Res.81 which invokes the War Powers Resolution regarding US involvement in Yemen’s civil war.

If passed, the resolution would end all US involvement/support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, including refueling, targeting assistance/intelligence, and other logistical support. This resolution is privileged, meaning it is guaranteed a vote in the House of Representatives next week, most likely on Friday, October 13.

Senators Franken and Klobuchar and Reps. Ellison, McCollum and Nolan also support the resolution.
