Title War power of Congress and revision of the war powers resolution
Date 1991
Description The United States Congress enacted the War Powers Resolution to restore its constitutionally mandated control over the war- making process. By forcing the President to seek congressional approval for military activity in volatile situations, Congress hoped to avoid the abuse of the war power by the executive branch that led to the Vietnam War. However, the War Powers Resolution is deeply flawed. It functionally delegates congressional war power to the President for at least sixty days.
