March 20, 2018

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Tuesday after the Senate voted to table a War Powers resolution that would have ended U.S. involvement in Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen.

“The power to declare war belongs to Congress,” Sen. Lee said. “By tabling this measure today we have chosen yet again to abdicate our constitutional responsibility.”
