Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives have urged the new Speaker, Republican Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, to schedule a vote to authorize the deployment of troops to fight the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

A bipartisan group of thirty-five Democrats and Republicans sent a letter to Ryan calling for the vote.

“We do not share the same policy prescriptions for U.S. military engagement in the region, but we do share the belief that it is past time for the Congress to fulfill its obligations under the Constitution and vote on an AUMF that clearly delineates the authority and limits, if any, on U.S. military engagement in Iraq, Syria and the surrounding region,” the group wrote in a letter sent to the Speaker on Friday.

A call for a new authorization for use of military force (AUMF) arose on November 4 when House members, primarily Democrats, argued the president lacks the constitutional authority to send special operations forces to Syria.
