Bill Introduced in the House to End the War in Yemen

•, Dave DeCamp

A resolution was introduced in the House on Thursday that calls for an end to US involvement in the war in Yemen. The bill was introduced by Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) and co-sponsored by seven other members of the House, including three Republicans, making the legislation a bipartisan rebuke to the war, similar to a measure President Trump vetoed in 2019.

The legislation invokes the 1973 War Powers Resolution and calls for the president "to remove United States Armed Forces from unauthorized hostilities in the Republic of Yemen."

Since 2015, the US has supported Saudi Arabia and its allies in a war against Yemen's Houthis. While US troops are not fighting on the ground against the Houthis, the support the US military gives the coalition is covered under the War Powers Resolution.
