Ordered to be reported

Introduced four months after U.S. pres. Trump imposed punitive cuts on U.S. aid to UNRWA (see JPS 47 [3]), this bill would direct the secretary of state to submit to Congress a long-term strategy for funding and policy toward the agency. The strategy would have to include anticipated U.S. contributions for the next five years; a list of all individuals and offices that review U.S. contributions to UNRWA; all metrics, data, and other information being used to review U.S. contributions to UNRWA; a description of any desired reforms the Trump administration has submitted to UNRWA or the UN as conditions for future funding; and an analysis of the national security impact of any changes to U.S. contributions to UNWRA.
