Barbara Lee introduces bill to end the "War on Terror"

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c113:H.R.198.IH:/

113th CONGRESS

1st Session

H. R. 198

To repeal Public Law 107-40.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

January 4, 2013

Ms. LEE of California (for herself, Mr. CONYERS, Mr. ELLISON, Mr. GRIJALVA, and Ms. EDWARDS) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs

A BILL

To repeal Public Law 107-40.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the `Repeal of the Authorization for Use of Military Force'.

SEC. 2. CONGRESSIONAL FINDING.

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.

SEC. 3. REPEAL OF PUBLIC LAW 107-40.

Effective 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) is hereby repealed.
