Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid returned to the floor on Friday as part of the continued push to move a resolution forward that would authorize limited U.S. military action in Syria. Reid came back from summer recess a few days early to file the resolution on the Senate floor, a clerical transaction that must take place in order for it to be put on the Senate calendar. Earlier in week, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved a resolution to authorize a limited military strike on Syria in response to its suspected use of chemical weapons against civilians.
