This resolution supported the Obama administration’s efforts to negotiate a new MoU with the Israeli government that would increase annual U.S. military aid to Israel. The current MoU, which provided $30 b. in military aid over 10 years, was set to expire in 2018. The Obama administration announced a new $38-b., 10-year military aid deal with Israel on 9/14/16, substantially upping annual U.S. support.
