Senate Committee Set to Vote on Military Strike on Syria

Sep 4, 2013 7:25 AM

A key Senate committee could vote as early as today on a revised resolution to authorize a military strike on Syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons. The newly rewritten resolution bars the use of American ground troops for combat operations. If approved, the President would have 60 days to order the strike. The authorization can be extended 30 days. Secretary of State John Kerry spent Tuesday on capitol hill urging his former colleagues to approve the authorization he's optimistic the president will win the vote.
