War Powers

As widely noted, former Secretaries of State James Baker and Warren Christopher are pushing for a redraft of the War Powers Act.

As reported in the LA Times:

The proposed law would require the president to notify Congress of any plans for
combat lasting, or expected to last, longer than one week and require Congress
to vote on a resolution of approval within 30 days of being notified. Military
actions shorter than one week and covert operations would be exempt.

I will post a draft when I find one.
