U.S. Senate’s First Bill, in Midst of Shutdown, is a Bipartisan Defense of the Israeli Government from Boycotts

In the 2019 GOP-controlled Senate, the first bill to be considered –
S.1 – is not designed to protect American workers, bolster U.S.
companies, or address the various debates over border security and
immigration. It’s not a bill to open the government. Instead, according
to multiple sources involved in the legislative process, S.1 will be a
compendium containing a handful of foreign-policy related
measures, a main one of which is a provision, with Florida’s GOP Sen.
Marco Rubio as a lead sponsor, to defend the Israeli government. The
bill is a top legislative priority for AIPAC.
