From the Summary: "Both the Iraq War and what the Bush Administration terms the Global War on Terror (GWOT) have been the subjects of considerable legislative activity since the opening days of the 110th Congress. After the Iraq Study Group released its recommendations on December 6, 2006, President Bush followed on January 10, 2007, with an announcement of a new strategy for the Iraq War. The President's plan proposed an increase of 28,500 U.S. troops to help improve security in Baghdad and counter Al Qaeda operatives in Anbar Province. After the President's announcement, a number of bills were introduced in the House and Senate that reflected congressional opposition to the 'surge' of U.S. forces and that offered alternative plans for changing the U.S. forces' mission in Iraq. […] CRS [Congressional Research Service] has included the bill number, date introduced, sponsor, short title, key provisions, and vote or status for each piece of legislation covered. Key provisions highlight factors that could have an impact on the policy of or the course of events in the Iraq War or the GWOT. This report will be updated on a regular basis."
