Washington, DC – Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) responded to a House Committee vote to repeal the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) with the following statement: 

I am shocked and deeply troubled by the decision of the House Appropriations Committee to adopt an amendment that rescinds the authority granted by Congress to allow the President to execute the war against terrorism.  This is not their decision to make and I wholeheartedly disagree with it.

“While I certainly support the passage of a new, unrestrictive Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), this amendment sends a devastating message to our allies and gives a vote of confidence to our enemies.  I will regretfully oppose the Defense Appropriations Bill in its current form.”
