Iron Dome Support Act

March 13, 2013
March 13, 2013
Referred to House (sub)committee

This bill would authorize the president to assist Israel by procuring, maintaining, enhancing, and sustaining the Iron Dome missile defense system. Unlike the 2012 version of this bill (H.R. 4229 of 3/21/12), the current wording includes ‘enhancing,’ and adds language noting official Israeli statements of willingness to share the technology used to produce the Iron Dome system with the U.S.

On 1/24/13, Rep. Davis circulated a letter calling for cosponsors to this resolution. In it, she cited the Iron Dome’s oft-quoted 90% success rate.

Pro-Israel groups, including AIPAC and J Street, supported this bill.

87 cosponsors (50D, 38R).

See also: H.R. 4229 of 3/21/12, H.R. 2701 of 7/16/13, and H.R. 2717 of 7/17/13.

Last major action: 3/13/13 referred to House Cmte. on Foreign Affairs.
