Nebraska U-S Senator Mike Johanns is pleased that legislation is quickly making its way through Congress to combat the terrorist group ISIL. The U-S House passed an amendment that would provide funding to the Department of Defense and the State Department to equip and train moderate forces fighting ISIL in Syria. It also requires a number of progress reports to improve congressional oversight.
Senator Johanns says the U-S Senate is taking up that same amendment today. He says he is convinced that the U-S must do our part to end their reign of terror and prevent it from being spread around the world.
Senator Johanns the U-S will not be alone in the mission. He says several other countries have committed to the cause and hopes that others will join the effort.
