The Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week approved the Taylor Force Act in a major step for legislation that seeks to cut off U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) if the PA continues its payments to terrorists and their families.

Approved in a 17-4 vote, the bill received the backing of all the committee’s Republicans, as well as several leading Democrats, including Maryland’s Sen. Ben Cardin, New Jersey’s Sen. Bob Menendez and Virginia’s Sen. Tim Kaine.
