Senate Tables Paul Motion on Libya/Attack Authority Resolution

A motion offered by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) to the SBIR and STTR Reauthorization Act (S. 493) has been tabled by a vote of 90-10.

Senator Paul offered a “motion to commit” on the small business measure that would, if adopted, refer the bill to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee with instructions to add language expressing the sense of the Senate that the “President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation,” according to a press release.

The wording of the resolution originated from a quote given by then-Senator Obama in 2007.
