Peter Welch has voted to support President Obama’s military policies in Libya. He
backed legislation that would ensure future funding for the mission. He also voted for a bill that specifically authorized the President’s
military actions, but that
legislation was defeated.
Peter Welch says President Obama is "dangerously close" to being in violation
of the War Powers Act. The
Obama Administration hasn’t sought Congressional approval for its military
actions in Libya and the 90 day deadline will expire this weekend.
