After bipartisan legislation, unanimously passed by Congress, stalled in the Senate
Two US congressmen on Thursday re-introduced the Palestinian International Terrorism Support Prevention Act, a motion imposing sanctions on persons, agencies and governments that financially assist Palestinian terror groups Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, or their proxies and affiliates.
The bill's co-sponsors were New Jersey Democratic House representative Josh Gottheimer and Florida Republican Brian Mast.

The bipartisan motion, also known as House Resolution 1850, seeks “to impose sanctions with respect to foreign support for Palestinian terrorism, and for other purposes.”
The bill was originally introduced in 2019 and passed by the House unanimously. However, a version of the legislation, subsequently introduced in the Senate by Connecticut Democrat Richard Blumenthal and Florida Republican Marco Rubio, was not approved by the end of the Congressional session.
