Referred to Senate (sub)committee

Like the House’s version of the Taylor Force Act (H.R. 1164 of 2/16/17), this bill would prohibit certain aid to the West Bank and Gaza until the secretary of state could certify that the PA has ended its monthly payments to the perpetrators of acts of violence against Israeli citizens in areas under its control and was “taking steps” to end such acts. The one difference: this version would not require the secretary of state to certify that the PA was publicly condemning such acts to lift the hold on aid.
