The Iraq War Powers Repeal Act of 2006 (H.R. 5875) was introduced July 25, 2006, by Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-California) in the U.S. House of Representatives (109th Congress, 2d Session). "The bill employs the rationale that since President Bush declared" 'mission accomplished'" on May 1, 2003, the United States "has been engaged in an occupation, not a war, which Congress never authorized," The Raw Story reported August 1, 2006. The bill has 22 co-sponsors.
