Conference of Presidents Leaders Urge Prompt Passage of the Taylor Force Act by the Full Senate

New York, NY . . . Leaders of the Conference of Presidents today urged the full Senate to quickly pass the Taylor Force Act following bipartisan approval of an amended version of the bill by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Stephen M. Greenberg, Chairman and Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman/CEO said, “The version of the Taylor Force Act, approved today by a significant bipartisan majority of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, imposes meaningful consequences on the Palestinian Authority if it continues the practice of providing financial incentives to reward despicable acts of terrorism.  For a governmental body to incentivize killings and provide rewards geared to the number of dead is an outrage that cannot be allowed to continue. 

We urge the Senate to promptly adopt this important legislation.”
