Senate Committee Still Waiting On Revised Syria Resolution

The revised resolution authorizing military action in Syria will be delayed a little longer after the Senate Foreign Relations Committee began its business meeting Wednesday afternoon with no finalized resolution.

At the start of the hearing, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), whose staff is helping draft the resolution, said the committee was “semi-filibustering as we’re waiting for language to be developed.”

The odd pronouncement came after a chaotic morning for the new resolution. The mark-up was delayed nearly three hours as the committee met behind closed doors, attempting to hammer out new language.
