Below is a link to Barbara Lee’s resolution   

H.R. 198: Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force

“Congress finds that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note), signed into law on September 18, 2001, has been used to justify a broad and open-ended authorization for the use of military force and such an interpretation is inconsistent with the authority of Congress to declare war and make all laws for executing powers vested by the Constitution in the Government of the United States.”
Chellie Pingree is a co-sponsor, along with McGovern and others whom Rep. Michaud is often aligned with.
Does anyone know Michaud’s position on this ?
