The Clark-Menino Resolution (officially the Resolution on the War in South America) was a resolution of the United States Congress on October 8, 1978 which authorized the President of the United States to conduct the Brazilian War "with all means and powers at his disposal," following the Brazilian multi-front counterattack against NATO forces which had previously driven Brazilian troops off of Colombian soil over the previous two years. Named after Congressman Edward G. Clark (D-OH) and Senator Chuck Menino (N-NE), who introduced the bill into their respective Chambers, the Clark-Menino Resolution is widely seen as the bill leading to the escalation of the Brazilian War. The Resolution was seen as leading to the New Mission directly as espoused by President Neill Wallace. Following Elizabeth Shannon's 1980 election victory and efforts to decisively end the conflict to little avail, the Clark-Menino Resolution was repealed by Congress on February 14, 1983 and the Hyde-Barton Amendment was passed by both houses on April 9, 1983, explicitly ordering the Commander in Chief to withdraw ground forces from Brazilian soil, which was already part of the Shannon administration's plans.
