[Congressional Bills 110th Congress] [From the U.S. Government Printing Office] [S. Con. Res. 20 Referred in House (RFH)] 1st Session S. CON. RES. 20 _______________________________________________________________________ IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES March 16, 2007 Referred to the Committee on Armed Services _______________________________________________________________________ CONCURRENT RESOLUTION Whereas under Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution of the United States, the President is the ``commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United States'', and in such capacity the President has the command of the Armed Forces, including the authority to deploy troops and direct military campaigns during wartime; Whereas under Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution of the United States, Congress has the power of the purse specifically as it relates to the Armed Forces, and in such capacity Congress has the responsibility to fully and adequately provide funding for United States military forces, especially when they are at war and are defending the Nation; and Whereas when United States military forces are in harm's way and are protecting our country, Congress and the Nation should give them all the support they need in order to maintain their safety and accomplish their assigned missions, including the equipment, logistics, and funding necessary to ensure their safety and effectiveness, and such support is the responsibility of both the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch of Government: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that Congress should not take any action that will endanger United States military forces in the field, including the elimination or reduction of funds for troops in the field, as such action with respect to funding would undermine their safety or harm their effectiveness in pursuing their assigned missions. Passed the Senate March 15, 2007. Attest: NANCY ERICKSON, Secretary.
