Reps. Ted Lieu [D-CA] and Ted Yoho [R-FL] have introduced legislation in the House (H.J.R. 90) that would restrict U.S. weapons transfers to Saudi Arabia. Just like the companion Murphy-Paul bill in the Senate, it would require the President to certify that Saudi Arabia is limiting civilian casualties in its war in Yemen and cooperating with the U.S. against ISIS and Al Qaeda before U.S. weapons transfers to Saudi Arabia could go forward.
Please call your Representative now at (202) 224-3121 and urge them to co-sponsor the Lieu-Yoho bill. When you reach a staffer or leave a message, you can say something like:
“As a constituent, I urge you to co-sponsor the Lieu-Yoho bill, HJR 90. It’s time for greater Congressional oversight of U.S. weapons transfers to Saudi Arabia.“
When you’ve made your call, please report it below.
And if you haven’t signed our petition urging Congress to support the Lieu-Yoho bill yet, please do that here.
