In July 1973, the U.S. Congress passed a law Public Law 93-50 that forbade the expenditure of funds in support of combat activities in or over Cambodia, Laos, North Vietnam and South Vietnam by U.S. forces after 15 August, 1973. In November, 1973, the War Powers Resolution was passed by both Houses of Congress over a Presidential veto, and became Public Law 93-148. The impact of these two laws which seem to preclude rather rigidly the reappearance of U.S. Armed forces in the Indochinese war, is discussed in this report.
