WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement regarding President Obama’s proposed Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF):

“Today Congress received President Obama’s Authorization for the Use of Military Force proposal to combat ISIS and those fighting with them.  This is a very important decision and is worthy of thoughtful, deliberate consideration and debate. Our mission is clear: we need a serious bipartisan solution to destroy ISIS and those radicalized by them. I look forward to continuing to discuss the President’s proposal and the most effective and efficient path forward with my colleagues and military leaders in the time ahead.”
