Back Murphy-Paul-Lieu-Yoho Limits on Weapons to Saudis

Congress should support S.J.R. 32 (Murphy-Paul) and H.J.R. 90 (Lieu-Yoho) to impose new conditions on U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia.

Why is this important?

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) have introduced [1] legislation that would impose new restrictions on U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia (S.J.R. 32). [2] Companion legislation in the House (H.J.R. 90) [3] has been introduced [4] by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL). Bernie Sanders surrogate Larry Korb has indicated that Senator Sanders would support the bill. [5]

The legislation would require the President to certify that Saudi Arabia is cooperating with the U.S. against terrorism and protecting civilians in its war in Yemen before U.S. weapons could be transferred to Saudi Arabia.
