The Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the Taylor Force Act in opposition to the Palestinian Authority’s policy of paying salaries to terrorists and their families.
On Thursday a bill was approved by the Senate Committee to cut off $300 million in annual U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority unless it stops making what lawmakers described as “payments that reward violent crimes.”
The measure, known as the Taylor Force, was approved in a 17-4 vote by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The bill is named after Taylor Force, a 29-year-old military veteran who was fatally stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist during his visit to Israel in March 2016.
The committee approved the act by a 17-4 vote, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), the committee’s chairman, announced.
