War Powers Act

Recently a panel headed by James Baker came up with a proposal called the War Powers act. The Act would required congress to give consent to the president within 30 days the next time the President commits troops. There is one thing that the panel might forgot, there is already a War Powers act. It's called the War Powers Act of 1973. It requires congress to give consent within 60 days.
