The new legislation, led by Senators Todd Young and Tim Kaine, revokes both the 2002 Iraq and 1991 Gulf War permits, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
At least 60 votes
Passing the legislation requires at least 60 votes in the 100-member Senate, which means at least 10 Republican votes are needed to join all 50 Democrats for the legislation to succeed.
On Wednesday, the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted to cancel two authorizations that give open approval to the use of military force in Iraq.
It is noteworthy that the Biden administration revealed, weeks ago, that it supports efforts in Congress to repeal the authorization for the use of military force, issued in 2002, which reinforces lawmakers’ efforts to withdraw the authority to declare war from the White House.
