AUMF repeal passesThe Senate passed legislation Wednesday repealing decades-old military authorizations and formally end the Iraq and Gulf wars.

The bill to repeal the authorization for the use of military force, or AUMF, passed in the Senate by a vote of 66-30.

This isn't the first time Congress is voting to repeal the military authorizations. A bill previously passed the House in 2021 but failed to pass in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., reintroduced the bipartisan legislation in February that would prevent future presidents from misusing military force without congressional authorization. The bill had dozens of bipartisan cosponsors.
