H.Amdt.1216 to H.R.5293. Rep. Barbara Lee’s (D-CA) amendment would have prohibited funds from being used for the 2001 AUMF after April 30, 2017. With no expiration date, no geographic limitations, and vague language around acceptable targets, the 2001 AUMF has served as a blank check for war for the executive branch, allowing Congress to shirk one of its most important duties: to debate and vote on whether or not we go to war. Failed, 146-274.
