WASHINGTON D.C. — MARCH 23, 2018
Congress passes Taylor Force act
as part of $1.3 trillion budget bill
Rider to the omnibus spending bill, named for an American Taylor Force, killed by a Palestinian terrorist, cuts US aid to Palestinians until PA and PLO stop funding terrorists and their families
WASHINGTON — Congress gave final approval Friday to a massive $1.3 trillion spending bill that included as a rider the Taylor Force Act, which would cut some aid to Palestinians until they end stipends for terror convicts and families of slain attackers.
After late-night arguments and objections from fiscal conservatives to massive outlays on Democratic priorities at a time when Republicans control the House, Senate and White House, the budget finally passed late Thursday, avoiding a budget crisis.
Thank you Mr. President
