The War Powers Resolution: Intent and Controversy

•What was the intent of Congress in the War Powers Act of 1973?
•How would you characterize the impact of this legislation on congressional authority in national security?
•In your analysis, is this law a necessary extension of congressional authority in response to the growth of presidential power-or is it an unnecessary and harmful impingement upon the president’s role as commander in chief? Why or why not?
