Agreed to in House

This annual resolution sets priorities related to spending for all government programs and initiatives. Matters pertaining to the broader Arab-Israeli conflict are largely absent from the draft of the measure that was ultimately passed in both chambers of Congress, but Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) proposed four amendments during the Senate’s consideration on 10/18. Each of these allow for the Senate Budget Committee to adjust its ledger related to hypothetical future legislation imposing sanctions on Iran in connection with its nuclear and ballistic missile programs. None were considered by the full plenum.
