This resolution provides $225 m. in emergency supplemental funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, in response to a request from the Israeli government and approval from the Defense Dept.
In the midst of Israel’s assault on the Gaza Strip, on 8/1/14, the Senate approved an amendment to replace the entire text of an earlier bill with the measure above. This process allowed for the appropriations to be passed outside the normal committee process.
See S. 2648 of 7/23/14 and H.R. 5235 of 7/29/14 for more on the emergency supplemental appropriations.
Last major action: 8/4/14 Became public law. (8/1/14 Agreed to in the House by yea/nay vote, 395–8. 8/1/14 Passed in the Senate by unanimous consent.)
