Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12), Chairwoman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations, released the following statement after the Committee was notified today that the Administration plans to transfer $450 million in cash assistance to the new Egyptian government:

"This proposal comes to Congress at a point when the U.S. - Egypt relationship has never been under more scrutiny, and rightly so. I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and I cannot support it at this time. As Chair of the Subcommittee, I have placed a hold on these funds."
