End the U.S. War in Yemen
As early as this week, the Senate could vote on ending the illegal U.S. war in Yemen.
Amendment #3793 offered by Senator Chris Murphy (CT) to the Pentagon spending bill (FY 19 Defense Appropriations bill) would end funding for the illegal U.S. war in Yemen unless and until the Pentagon certifies that the Saudi-led coalition is not violating international law.
This important initiative comes in the wake of reports confirming that the bomb used in the Saudi-led coalition’s attack on a school bus that killed 40 children was made in the U.S.
While Murphy’s amendment is not guaranteed a vote and the timing is uncertain, the more senators who cosponsor the amendment, the more likely the Senate will vote on legislation to end the war.
UPDATE 8/22/18: The following senators have co-sponsored Senator Murphy's amendment: Schatz, Warren, Feinstein, Carper, Blumenthal, Kaine, Peters, Booker, Markey, Leahy, Cardin, Van Hollen
