House and Senate Approve FY2001 Foreign Aid

(October 25, 2000)


Both the House and Senate approved  $2.82 billion in economic and military aid to Israel as part of the fiscal year 2001 foreign aid bill. The legislation, which passed in the House by a vote of 307-101 and in the Senate by a 65-27 margin, includes $1.98 billion in military assistance and $840 million in economic assistance. The bill includes all the traditional pro-Israel provisions, including early disbursal, which allows Israel to receive the aid within 30 days of passage, and offshore procurement, which allows Israel to spend a portion of its military assistance in Israel. The bill now goes to President Clinton who is expected to sign the measure.
