Hot Docs: National War Powers Commission

The National War Powers Commission, co-chaired by Secretaries of State
Baker and Christopher, released a report yesterday. This commission report
recommends that Congress repeal the 1973 War Powers Resolution and
“substitute a new statute that would provide for more meaningful
consultation between the President and Congress. In its final report,
the Commission has recommended that Congress pass a new statute, the War
Powers Consultation Act of 2009, establishing a clear process on
decisions to go to war.”
