Senate panel delays war authorization repeal after GOP push

Source: The Hill

A Senate panel is postponing for at least a couple of days consideration of a bill to repeal a pair of war authorizations related to Iraq after a group of Republicans on the committee pushed for a delay.

A Democratic Senate aide confirmed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will not take up the bill Tuesday as originally planned due to Republicans' request to hold it over.

It is unclear when the bill will be taken up now, but the committee already had a tentative backup business meeting on its schedule for Thursday.

The delay comes after five GOP senators asked for a public hearing with the secretaries of Defense and State as well as a classified briefing with those departments and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence before the panel votes on repealing 1991 and 2002 authorizations for the use of military force (AUMF).
