"We must remember James Foley and Steven Sotloff and their courage and determination to show the world what was happening in Syria. This resolution helps America do that. We also must work with other nations to stop the evil of ISIL," Shea-Porter said.

Shea-Porter's resolution is sponsored by five Florida House members, including two Republicans — Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Gus Bilirakis — and Democrats Alcee Hastings, Ted Deutch and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. New Hampshire Democrat Ann McLane Kuster also signed on as a co-sponsor.

Ros-Lehtinen called for airstrikes against ISIS.

"ISIL is a terrorist organization with no regard for human life or any rules of civilized society. As ISIL’s violence against women, children and minorities increase, we must continue to condemn their disregard for human life and take immediate action to stop them with airstrikes and by taking decisive action to cut off their financial and material lifelines," she said.

Earlier this week, the Senate passed a similar resolution by unanimous consent.

The House is expected to take up an authorization to arm Syrian rebels to fight ISIS as soon as next Tuesday.
