House approves security cooperation

The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill that would fund homeland security cooperation with Israel and other allies. The bill, which authorizes $25 million over three years, passed late Tuesday by a 396-16 vote. It’s similar to a bill passed last year, which never made it through the Senate. This version is expected to pass the Senate, where it’s now under consideration. The American Israel Public Affairs Committee lobbied for the bill.
