Bid to Boost Aid to Israel Could Be Stalled by Govt Shutdown

Increasing US military aid to Israel is usually one of the safest votes in Congress. This week’s plan to pass such a resolution could be stalled indefinitely, however, because of the government shutdown.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is planning to push a procedural vote on Tuesday that would keep the Senate from considering any bills until they vote on a House-passed bill to end the government shutdown.

This vote is intended to put pressure on the administration to resolve the shutdown, and is likely the answer to President Trump saying last week that the shutdown could last months or even years.
