It’s not often that a freshman legislator gets one of the bills he authors through the U.S. House of Representatives, but 9th District Rep. Doug Collins can claim that victory today.

The bill, H.R. 1992, enhances the accountability in the United States / Israel relationship by compelling biannual reports to Congress of weapons sales in the Middle East. Additionally, H.R. 1992 considers the threat of cyber warfare as it relates to Israel. The bill passed the House with a vote of 399-0.

After passage, Collins said:

America’s support for Israel should be strong and responsive to the changing threats facing our strongest Middle Eastern ally. Especially in the wake of the Administration’s recent talks with Iran, Congress must demonstrate its unwavering commitment to a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.

Congratulations, Representative Collins. May you enjoy more legislative victories in the years ahead.

Isn’t a Resolution different than a bill? Or do all law and resolutions originate as bills?

At the federal level all bills are called House Resolutions. At the state level their are House Bills and House Resolutions.
