ABSTRACT

U.S. Armed Forces Abroad: Selected Congressional Roll Call Votes Since 1982 [January 27, 2006]   [open pdf - 0B]

"This report lists relevant congressional roll call votes for several major instances in which U.S. Armed Forces have been sent abroad in potentially hostile situations. These votes are representative of those that have a direct correlation to issues affecting policy and funding of troops abroad, often in the context of the War Powers Resolution, continued presence or withdrawal, or 'use of force.' The cases of Lebanon (1982-1983), Grenada (1983), Panama (1989), the Persian Gulf War (1990- 1991), Somalia (1992-1995), Haiti (1993-1996), Bosnia (1992-1998), Kosovo (1999), the terrorist attack against America (2001) (including the use of U.S. Armed Forces in Afghanistan), and the use of U.S. Armed Forces against Iraq (2002-present) are examined. Those roll call votes that are available online (since 1990 in the House and 1989 in the Senate) are linked. This report will be updated as events or legislation warrant."
