July 17, 2013
Referred to House (sub)committee

This bill would authorize the U.S. president to provide assistance for the procurement of the Iron Dome missile defense system, as requested by the Israeli government. It would also authorize continued cooperation on the development and procurement of David’s Sling, Arrow, and Arrow 3 missile defense systems.

It also cites Israel’s willingness to share the technology of the Iron Dome with the U.S., but does not make any stipulation to that effect.

This bill is identical to H.R. 2701 of 7/16/13. It is unclear why Rep. Roskam introduced the same measure twice.

49 cosponsors (41R, 8D).

See also: H.R. 1130 of 3/13/13.

Last major action: 7/17/13 referred to House Cmte. on Foreign Affairs.
