Senator Bill Nelson plans to introduce legislation that would give President Obama authority to bomb ISIS forces in Syria.

The Florida Democrat is the first Capitol Hill lawmaker to announce concrete plans that would offer congressional clearance for the President to strike at ISIS in Syria.

Nelson says he'll introduce his bill as soon as Congress reconvenes next week.

The U.S. has already conducted over 100 airstrikes against ISIS forces in Iraq.
