WASHINGTON, DC – House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement after House Republicans moved to block debate on the Yemen War Powers Resolution:

“This Congress should have a full and transparent debate on the United States’s role in Yemen’s civil conflict; by blocking that from happening, House Republicans are shirking their Congressional responsibility.  This War Powers Resolution was necessary because Republicans have refused all other means by which Members can force action on this issue. The crisis in Yemen is horrific and Congress must step up and take action to change the Administration’s policy regarding this misbegotten campaign.”
