Your participation matters! Here is a summary of the exciting developments: 1. The Hezbollah International Financial Prevention Act had 24 cosponsors prior to the NORPAC Mission. Now there are over 100 cosponsors for the House bill. 2. Sen. Marco Rubio (R- Fla.) agreed to co- introduce similar Hezbollah legislation in the Senate. 3. On the Mission day we added a 60 th Senate cosponsor (John Walsh D-MT) onto the Menendez- Kirk Iran Sanctions Bill- a Herculean feat given the President's pressure to delay that bill. 4. Rep. Alan Grayson (D- Fla.) prepared legislation to cut off funding for higher education institutions which support BDS( Boycott Divestment Sanctions of Israel ) ___________________________________________ CHINUCH/ADULT EDUCATION Guidelines for Lifecycle events can be downloaded from our website www.yieb.org under the dropdown menu; Member Area/Guidelines (logged-in members only).
