WASHINGTON D.C. (WKZO) -- The President’s decision to consult with Congress before launching strikes on Syria is generally popular with the Michgian Congressional Delegation, even if the level of skepticism may vary among the representatives.

House Intelligence Committee Chair and Michigan Republican Mike Rogers told CNN’s “State of the Union" that he thinks the President will get the endorsement he seeks. He says the Congress has a constitutional duty to back him up.

Michigan Democrat Sander Levin attended a classified briefing on Sunday, with about 100 other representatives.

Levin thinks they must approve a strike or Assad or others like him will be encouraged to repeat the atrocity.

West Michigan Republican Justin Amash says constitutionally the President needs their approval, and he doesn’t think the president has made the case yet.
