Support Democracy in Egypt Act

March 4, 2013
March 4, 2013
Referred to House (sub)committee

This bill would forbid the sale or transfer of any military equipment to Egypt unless the president certified that Egypt was verifiably working to counter terrorism and smuggling in the Sinai, adopting policies to protect religious and political freedoms, and upholding its 1979 peace treaty with Israel. The president would be allowed to waive these conditions if it was in the U.S national security interest. However, the bill expressly stipulates that M1 tanks and F-16 fighter-jets would not be transferred without the above-mentioned certification.

4 cosponsors (4R)
