Recognition of Jerusalem as the Capital of the State of Israel Act

January 4, 2017
February 16, 2017
Referred to House (sub)committee

This bill would repeal the provision in the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 that allows the president to waive, every 6 mos., the congressional directive to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It would also require the secretary of state to submit a report to Congress with estimates on the time and funding required to make the move.

See S. 11 of 1/3/17 for more on the proposed U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem.

See also: nearly identical bill H.R. 4718 of 12/21/17.
