Himes introduces The Reclamation of War Powers Act

4th District Congressman Jim Himes has introduced The Reclamation of War Powers Act.  The bill would explicitly return the power to declare and wage war back to Congress, as the Constitution requires.  He says sending young men and women into harm’s way is a decision that should be made by the direct representatives of the people and families making the sacrifice.  With open conflict in Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and the potential for conflict in North Korea, Iran and Venezuela, Himes says they must establish both who has the authority to commit the military and establish objectives in any military endeavor.
