RJC Strongly Supports Cotton/Lamborn Bill to Block "Pay-for-Slay" Payments to Palestinian Terrorists

Washington, DC – The Republican Jewish Coalition strongly supports the Taylor Force Martyr Payment Prevention Act, legislation sponsored by Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) in the Senate and Congressman Doug Lamborn (R-CO) in the House of Representatives.

RJC National Chairman Senator Norm Coleman said:

"The 2018 Taylor Force Act was a vital first step toward ending the Palestinian Authority's "pay-for-slay" system that incentivizes deadly terrorist attacks against Israelis and Americans. The Cotton/Lamborn bill makes important progress toward that goal by denying access to the U.S. market for financial institutions that facilitate so-called 'martyr payments.'"

RJC CEO Matt Brooks said:

"The Biden administration has unfortunately been more interested in looking for loopholes in the Taylor Force Act than vigorously enforcing it. Senator Cotton, Congressman Lamborn and their colleagues are demonstrating strong leadership where the administration is failing."
