Bill to end support for Yemen war clears US House
US Rep. Ro Khanna hails 'historic' vote, says American people 'want Congress to play a much larger role' in foreign policy

By Michael Hernandez

WASHINGTON (AA) – The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed legislation Wednesday that would require President Donald Trump to halt U.S. assistance for the Saudi-led coalition's war in Yemen.

The bill will now head to the Senate for consideration following the 248-177 vote.

"Today is historic. This is the culmination of several years of legislative efforts to end our involvement in the Saudi war in Yemen," Rep. Ro Khanna, who spearheaded the bill, said in a statement after the vote.

"I’m encouraged by the direction people are pushing our party to take on foreign policy, promoting restraint and human rights and with the sense they want Congress to play a much larger role," he added.
