The U.S. House of Representatives passed the U.S.-Israel Strategic Partnership Act on March 5 and sent it to the Senate. The vote was a very lopsided 410-1, with 19 members not voting, according to the Congressional Record.

“The importance, I think, right now is trying to absolutely communicate to the world, to the administration, to anyone that might be listening, that the U.S. Congress, Republicans and Democrats, care an awful lot about this relationship with Israel and keeping Israel safe,” Rep. David Schweikert (R-CD6) said in a phone interview.
