Statement on Passage of the Taylor Force Act | Speaker.gov

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement after House passage of H.R. 1164, the Taylor Force Act:

“This bill is pretty simple: If you finance or reward terrorism, you don’t deserve a penny from the United States. The Palestinian Authority should be forced to choose between its despicable practice of paying terrorists' salaries and receiving foreign aid funded by the American taxpayer. And until that time comes, no government that supports the murder of innocent civilians can claim to be a serious partner for peace. I appreciate Chairman Royce, Congressman Lamborn, and all members on both sides of the aisle for their bipartisan efforts on this issue. In Taylor's memory, I look forward to the Senate passing this legislation so we can send it to the president's desk.”
