WASHINGTON (AP)–Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., says he won’t support a Senate resolution approved by the Foreign Relations Committee opposing President George w. Bush’s plan to boost troop levels in Iraq and prefers a milder resolution.

But the senator is still against the idea of sending more U.S. forces to the conflict.

Brownback says the resolution approved Tuesday by the Foreign Relations Committee is too divisive.

He prefers a milder resolution drafted by Republican Senator John Warner of Virginia that includes less partisan language and leaves open the possibility of Bush sending in a much smaller number of troops.

Brownback was among the first Republican lawmakers to publicly break with the president over a troop increase.
