WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today released the following statement after voting in favor of the Yemen War Powers resolution, S.J. Res. 54:
“I voted today to end America’s involvement in the war in Yemen, and I’m pleased the Senate took decisive and thoughtful action to reassert Congress’s constitutional authority in an effort to alleviate the humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen. I am certain this will be a matter of debate early in the next Congress, and I will continue to support promoting peace and security on the Arabian Peninsula.”
Items to Note:
- Last month, Sen. Moran voted to advance S.J. Res 54 from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which was agreed to 63-37.
- In March, Sen. Moran voted to proceed to consideration of S. J. Res. 54. It failed 55-44.
- Sen. Moran has also joined letters to the Administration expressing concern regarding the humanitarian impact of the siege of Hudaydah, Yemen, as well as questioning the certification of Saudi compliance with American law.
