The House voted on Thursday to repeal a nearly two-decade-old war powers measure that expanded presidential authorities following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

“After nearly 20 years of fighting for this, we’re finally one step closer to ending forever wars,” said Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee , the chief sponsor of the bill
