Presidents must seek a resolution from congress to continue military action more than 60 days (90 if it is necessary to get the troops out safely).-the war powers act was enacted in 1973 over the veto of president nixon. it allows the president to engage in military actions (also instituted if troops are moved into harms way) for 60 days (90 to get troops out safely). the congress must pass a resolution or the troops must come out. the court has said that an appropriation to support the action constitutes a resolution supporting the engagement. the supreme court has never ruled on the constitutionality of the act, and there are no penalties specified in the act. several presidents have questioned the constitutionality of the act but have followed it.
