Daines: We Must Weigh the Circumstances in Yemen before Putting Lives at Risk

U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines today released the following statement in anticipation of a Senate vote on S.J.Res.54, a joint resolution to direct the removal of United States Armed Forces from hostilities in the Republic of Yemen that have not been authorized by Congress. The vote will take place at 4:15 p.m. ET.

“For far too long U.S. troops have been involved in Yemen’s domestic conflict without congressional authorization or direction,” said Daines. “This resolution rightly asserts the power and duty given to Congress in the Constitution and ensures that our country fully weighs the circumstances in Yemen before putting U.S. lives at risk.”
