Rep. Barbara Lee Asks Colleagues to Reject Unconstitutional 3-Years-of-War Treaty


CO-SPONSOR H.RES. 72, EXPRESS DISAPPROVAL OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE REPUBLIC OF IRAQ

Current Co-sponsors: Filner, Grijalva, Jackson-Lee, Lewis (GA), Stark, Woolsey

Dear Colleague:

I invite you to join me as a co-sponsor of H. Res. 72, a resolution I recently introduced disapproving of the U.S.-Iraq agreement regarding troop withdrawal reached in Baghdad on November 17, 2008. The purpose of the resolution is to provide a vehicle through which House members can register their support or opposition to an agreement that was never formally submitted to them for their consideration by the Bush Administration.

H. Res. 72 is substantially identical to the resolution I introduced in the waning days of the 110th Congress, but is strengthened by additional language that makes clear that absent congressional approval the Agreement Between the United States of America and the Republic of Iraq on the Withdrawal of United States Forces from Iraq and the Organization of Their Activities During Their Temporary Presence in Iraq should be regarded as merely advisory in nature and that Congress should not consider itself obligated to appropriate any of the funds necessary to carry out the terms of the Agreement.

H.Res. 72 will enable Members to register their concerns regarding the form or substance of the agreement, or both. If you would like to co-sponsor, please contact Gregory Berry (Gregory.Berry@mail.house.gov) or Scott Exner (Scott.Exner@mail.house.gov) at 5-2661. (Text Attached)

Sincerely,

BARBARA LEE
Member of Congress
