Legislative Updates: 115th Congress
Ranking Member Deutch Applauds Passage of Taylor Force Act
Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22), voted in favor of the updated Taylor Force Act (H.R. 1164).
This bill prohibits certain U.S. assistance from being made available for the West Bank and Gaza unless the Department of State certifies that the Palestinian Authority ceases payments to terrorists and their families and takes steps to end acts of violence against U.S. and Israeli citizens. The bill was passed unanimously by the House on December 5. As ranking Member of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, Congressman Deutch approved of this bill last month while in committee.
