This bill would establish a framework for effective, transparent, and accountable U.S. foreign assistance. It overhauls the foreign aid system as it existed since the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 established modern parameters.
The bill lists several new priorities in the Middle East, including violence against women and girls, and promoting the rule of law and child protection. This bill does not change the status quo with regard to U.S. military and economic support for Israel, Palestine, and other countries in the region.
The bill died in committee before any of the specific provisions could be debated.
