HIRONO STATEMENT ON DEVELOPING SYRIA SITUATION

WASHINGTON, D.C.- Senator Mazie K. Hirono released the following statement on the developing situation in Syria:

"Authorizing the use of force is one of the most serious and consequential decisions a Member of Congress can make. Over the next 48 hours, I will be attending three classified briefings – one at the White House, one with Department of Defense officials and one for all Senators. I will make my decision after carefully considering the facts presented in these meetings and input I’ve received from Hawaii residents."
