Berman, Lowey Block Military Funding to Lebanon

08/10/2010

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Two members of Congress independently placed holds on military aid to Lebanon.

Rep. Howard Berman (D-Calif), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Rep. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Appropriations subcommittee, separately blocked a $100 million security assistance package to the Lebanese military. Berman placed the hold Aug. 2, one day before the Lebanese military fired at Israeli soldiers working on the border, while Lowey’s hold came after the incident.
