Bill Named for Slain Vanderbilt University Graduate Student Demands Palestinian Authority End Terrorism Payments

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) today praised Senate Foreign Relations Committee passage of legislation demanding the Palestinian Authority end its policy of rewarding terrorism. The Taylor Force Act, legislation introduced by Graham and Corker this week, would restrict U.S. economic aid to the West Bank and Gaza until the Palestinian Authority stops paying terrorists guilty of violence against Israelis and Americans. The bill is named after a Vanderbilt University graduate student who was killed in a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv last year.
