Hultgren urges President Obama to seek congressional approval before military engagement in Syria

U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren issued the following news release:

Congressman Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, this week, along with 115 Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle, signed a letter urging President Obama to follow the Constitution and convene Congress to seek their authorization before using military force in Syria.

“The horrific conflict in Syria only gets worse as more and more lives are lost, but that does not give the president authority to ignore our Constitution in matters of military engagement,” said Rep. Hultgren. “The Constitution is definitive when it comes to engaging U.S. military forces and we expect that the president would seek congressional authorization prior to committing U.S. military assets. We are ready to come back to Washington to deal with this issue head-on, carefully consider our options and, if necessary, act.”
