Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - The U.S. is one step closer to taking action in Syria for its use of chemical weapons.

A measure just cleared the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on a 10 to seven vote.

The measure includes a pledge of support for "Decisive changes to the present military balance of power" in Syria's Civil War.

The proposal is expected to reach the senate floor next week.
