This document contains the March 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, and 20, 1973 hearings titled "War Powers," held before the House Subcommittee on National Security Policy and Scientific Developments of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Clement J. Zablocki: "These hearings are a follow-on and complement to extensive hearing s on the same subject held by the subcommittee in 1970 and 1971. As a result of those hearings, the subcommittee drafted war powers legislation which passed the House of Representatives in both the 91st and 92nd Congresses. Subsequent failure by the Senate to act in the 91st Congress and a parliamentary snarl in the 92nd Congress prevented agreement. Consequently, with the convening of the 93rd Congress an updated and strengthened resolution was introduced as House Joint Resolution 2. That resolution and a number of other proposals which have been introduced on the subject of war powers will be considered during these hearings." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jacob K. Javits, Thomas F. Eagleton, Dante B. Fascell, Jonathan Bingham, William Chapell, Jr., Spark M. Matsunaga, Robert L. Leggett, David W. Dennis, Michael Harrington, Charles Brower, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Raoul Berger, W. Taylor Reveley, III, John Stevenson.
