This resolution would direct the president to remove U.S. Armed Forces from the conflict in Yemen between the Saudi-backed coalition and the Iran-backed Houthi rebels within 30 days — except for forces engaged in operations directed at Al Qaeda. U.S. troops have been assisting the coalition in an advisory and training role and providing aerial refueling assistance, which would be prohibited by this bill.
The bill uses authority granted to Congress by the War Powers Resolution, which required the president to notify Congress of military action and required the military’s withdrawal after 60 days unless Congress enacted legislation to authorize the use of military force (AUMF) or declare war.
As a joint resolution, this bill could be signed into law by the president after it’s passed by both chambers of Congress.
AMENDMENTS: The House adopted an amendment to this bill that'd express the sense of the House that it's in the U.S. national security interest to counter anti-Semitism around the world.
