Senator Rand Paul delays a vote for Iron Dome replenishment

Republican Sen. Rand Paul from Kentucky delayed on Monday a vote to fast track a bill that would provide Israel $1 billion to replenish its stockpile of Iron Dome interceptors.
The delay came about ten days after the House of Representatives passed a suspension bill to provide Jerusalem with the funding. It is still not clear when the Senate will vote on the initiative.

In recent days, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and Christians United For Israel (CUFI) both pressed Paul to support the bill. On Thursday, he became the only senator refusing to “hotline” the bill even after it had been approved by the House.

“Hotlining” is when all 100 senators agree to allow a bill to go straight to the floor for a vote, substantially accelerating the approval process.
