Agreement on the potential U.S. intervention in Syria is still uncertain for the Obama administration as being reported across the world.
This has prompted lawmakers to work on the proposal from the president that outlines what the U.S. is prepared to do to combat the use of chemical weapons on civilians.
There was evidence that Syria’s government used sarin gas against rebel forces that ultimately killed more than 1,400 people including children.
Reuters reported on Tuesday that Democratic Senate majority leader Harry Reid and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez planned on meeting to discuss a revision that can be brought to other members of Congress.
The proposal needs 60 votes from the Senate in order to pass according to reports.
"I think our resolution that we will ultimately see will be far more tailored than what the administration sent us,” Menendez said in the report.
Obama is allowing Congress to have a say in the decision, although he has mentioned that he does not require it.
In a report from USA Today on Tuesday, President Obama has confidence that Congress will go with his suggestion to get involved. He spoke with members to lay out the plan and urge for agreement.
The level of involvement will supposedly be small and not a broad military strike.
There will be no U.S. troops in Syria, Obama said according to the report: "This is not Iraq -- this is not Afghanistan."
Politicians have been divided on the decision due to the open-ended wording and possible dangers that could occur from military action in another country.
Texas Republican Micahel Burgess told USA Today that his district is not for the involvement.
Arizona’s Republican Senator John McCain has been an active voice of support. He backed Obama’s attack plan but wants him to go a step further and help arm rebel forces to bring down the regime.
