Huizenga Statement on Non-Binding War Powers Vote

Washington, January 9, 2020

Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) released the following statement after voting against the unenforceable and non-binding H. Con. Res. 83 – War Powers Resolution,

“While a potential escalation with Iran should be taken very seriously, the non-binding show vote put forward by Speaker Pelosi and Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin has no enforcement and looks more like a political statement than any sort of legislative response,” said Congressman Bill Huizenga. “Based on the information I received from General Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Staff, the President moved on actionable intelligence to protect America, our diplomats, and our troops by eliminating the chief architect of terrorism across the Middle East.”
