Lund and Rotunda Urge Congressional Leaders to Strip Unconstitutional Provisions from War Funding Bill

Professors Nelson Lund and Ronald Rotunda joined an elite group of lawyers and academics urging the House and Senate leadership to strip unconstitutional provisions from pending supplemental appropriations bills. 

The group, made up of experts in the Constitution and national security issues, signed a letter stressing the limitations placed on Congress in matters of war powers and warned that Congress would exceed those powers if it attempted to interfere with the president's operational decisions.

In addition to Lund and Rotunda, signers included former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese and Todd Gaziano, Director of The Heritage Foundation's Center for Legal and Judicial Studies.
