Contact your representatives asking them to support the National Security Powers Act!

Ask your representative to support Senator Sanders, Murphy, and Lee’s new bill: the National Security Powers Act of 2021! 

The National Security Powers Act, introduced by Senators Sanders, Lee, and Murphy, restores Congressional authority for the Use of Military Force, Emergency Powers, and Arms Exports by Cutting Off Funding for Activities Lacking Authorization.

This legislation is an important step toward reasserting Congress’s constitutional power over the use of military force in our foreign policy.  

The National Security Powers Act is divided into three parts—war powers reform, arms export reform, and national emergencies reform —all unified by a set of standard rules and procedures that reassert and safeguard congressional prerogatives. In each case, the president is required to consult congressional leaders and obtain congressional authorization before exercising the powers in question. Any congressional authorization will have to meet specific requirements, including an automatic sunset. Any activities lacking such authorization will face an automatic funding cutoff after a specified number of days.

You can read the full text of the bill here.
