(1)In the matter proposed to be inserted by the amendment of the 
Senate, strike sections 1, 2, and 3 and insert the following:

                    TITLE I--NO WAR AGAINST IRAN ACT

SEC. 101. SHORT TITLE.

    This title may be cited as the ``No War Against Iran Act''.

SEC. 102. PROHIBITION OF UNAUTHORIZED MILITARY FORCE IN OR AGAINST 
              IRAN.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
            (1) The acquisition by the Government of Iran of a nuclear 
        weapon would pose a grave threat to international peace and 
        stability and the national security of the United States and 
        United States allies, including Israel.
            (2) The Government of Iran is a leading state sponsor of 
        terrorism, continues to materially support the regime of Bashar 
        al-Assad, and is responsible for ongoing gross violations of 
        the human rights of the people of Iran.
            (3) Article I of the United States Constitution requires 
        the President to obtain authorization from Congress before 
        engaging in war with Iran.
    (b) Clarification of Current Law.--Nothing in the Authorization for 
Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note), the 
Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 
(Public Law 107-243; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note), or any other provision of 
law enacted before the date of the enactment of this Act may be 
construed to provide authorization for the use of military force 
against Iran.
    (c) Prohibition of Unauthorized Military Force in or Against 
Iran.--
            (1) In general.--Except as provided in paragraph (2), no 
        Federal funds may be obligated or expended for any use of 
        military force in or against Iran unless Congress has--
                    (A) declared war; or
                    (B) enacted specific statutory authorization for 
                such use of military force after the date of the 
                enactment of this Act that meets the requirements of 
                the War Powers Resolution (50 U.S.C. 1541 et seq.).
            (2) Exception.--The prohibition under paragraph (1) shall 
        not apply to a use of military force that is consistent with 
        section (2)(c) of the War Powers Resolution.
    (d) Rules of Construction.--Nothing in this title may be 
construed--
            (1) to prevent the President from using necessary and 
        appropriate force to defend United States allies and partners 
        if Congress enacts specific statutory authorization for such 
        use of force consistent with the requirements of the War Powers 
        Resolution (50 U.S.C. 1541 et seq.);
            (2) to relieve the executive branch of restrictions on the 
        use of force, reporting, or consultation requirements set forth 
        in the War Powers Resolution (50 U.S.C. 1541 et seq.); or
            (3) to authorize the use of military force.

(2)In the matter proposed to be inserted by the amendment of the 
Senate, strike sections 4 and 5 and insert the following:

  TITLE II--REPEAL OF AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE AGAINST 
                        IRAQ RESOLUTION OF 2002

SEC. 201. REPEAL OF AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE AGAINST 
              IRAQ RESOLUTION OF 2002.

    The Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution 
of 2002 (Public Law 107-243; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) is hereby repealed.

            Attest:

                                                                 Clerk.
