The Hill 
September 3, 2013
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) on Tuesday said expected revisions to President Obama’s resolution authorizing military strikes on Syria should include a strict requirement that the administration return to Capitol Hill if the mission expands to include deploying ground troops against President Bashar Assad’s regime.
Speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Kaine said Congress should specify that Obama seek “additional authority before there are boots on ground,” even though the president has stated publicly troops won’t be sent into Syria.
“That’s probably pretty important to specify,” said Kaine, adding there need to be “appropriate limitations” on U.S. strikes.
Kaine’s comments come amid concern among Democrats and Republicans that the resolution proposed by Obama to authorize strikes is too broad.
