Consolidated Authorization for Use of Military Force Resolution of 2017

This joint resolution authorizes the President, for three years, to use all necessary and appropriate force to protect U.S. national security against Al Qaeda, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), the Afghan Taliban, and any associated organized and armed group that is a co-belligerent against the United States.

Congress declares that this authorization is intended to constitute specific statutory authorization under the War Powers Resolution and that nothing in this joint resolution supersedes any requirement of such resolution.

The President shall: (1) submit to Congress and publish in the Federal Register at least every 90 days a list of entities (including their locations) against which such authority has been exercised. If the President exercises such authority to deploy ground forces in a combat role, the President shall notify Congress at the earliest possible date after such deployment consistent with U.S. national security interests.

A joint resolution introduced on or after such notification that provides for modification or repeal of a deployment authority shall be considered to be in accordance with applicable procedures under the War Powers Resolution.

Specified prior authorizations for the use of military force are repealed.
