ABSTRACT
The article reports on a nonbinding resolution sponsored by Republican Senator John Warner of Virginia that opposes the plan of U.S. President George W. Bush to increase troop levels in Iraq. The measure is expected to receive support from a majority of Democrats. Warner added a provision that would oppose reducing funds for troops to gain Republican votes. Senator John Cornyn and other Republican leaders are crafting resolutions that support Bush's plan.
