Asked if she was supporting the resolution, Murkowski said that she is. 

The House is expected to pass a resolution of disapproval to block the national emergency declaration later Tuesday, kicking the vote to the Senate. 

Democrats will need four Republicans to vote with them to pass the resolution through the Senate, where they need only a simple majority.

Collins told reporters in Maine last week that she would support a clean resolution to block Trump’s emergency declaration. Tillis wrote in a Washington Post op-ed released on Monday night that he would also vote for the resolution

Murkowski was already viewed as a “likely” "yes" vote after she told an Alaska TV station that she would “probably support it.”

"When I say probably, I want to make sure that what in fact we are voting on when it comes to the Senate is what I believe it is. If it's what I have seen right now, I will support the resolution to disapprove," Murkowski told KTUU late last week.
