Available on GPO’s Federal Digital System: Senate Resolutions

Authorizing Military Force Against Syria

Promoting a Diplomatic Solution for Syria

The situation in Syria and the United States’ response are rapidly evolving. But you can follow what the government is deciding thanks to the Government Printing Office and your Library.

As the U.S. Congress debates the United States’ potential use of military force against Syria for the use of chemical weapons, the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) makes the authentic, digital version of the Senate resolution available on the agency’s Federal Digital System (FDsys). As reported by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on September 6, the resolution’s title is: S. J. Res. 21 PCS, Authorization for the Use of Military Force Against the Government of Syria to Respond to Use of Chemical Weapons. GPO authenticated the document by digital signature. This signature assures the public that the document has not been changed or altered. A digital signature, viewed through the GPO Seal of Authenticity, verifies the document’s integrity and authenticity.

And as you know from the President’s speech on Tuesday evening, there is hopefully a diplomatic solution in the works. The Senate  passed a resolution about that on Tuesday as well.

September 6, 2013: Senate Joint Resolution 21 : To authorize the limited and specified use of the United States Armed Forces against Syria.

September 10, 2013: Senate Joint Resolution 22 : To promote a diplomatic solution in Syria, and for other purposes.
