The news from Israel this week is very sad. I know that for all sorts of reasons, Israel's security is important to folks in the 9th District of Georgia.
As our friends in Israel continue the fight against terrorism, I wanted to update you on my legislation to ensure Israel's ability to protect itself.
If you didn't hear, earlier in this Congress I introduced H.R. 1992, the Israel Qualitative Military Edge (QME) Enhancement Act. My bill addresses the fact that the in the 21st century, it's not the quantity of arms a nation has, but the quality of its military that makes the difference in its ability to truly defend itself.
My Israel QME bill promotes transparency and accountability in the United States' support of our most important ally in the Middle East. It's passed the House, and I'm confident that this principle will become law as the American people continue to demand support for the nation of Israel.
As always, please let me know your thoughts.
Member of Congress
