House of Representatives
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session

Subject: Coordinating Support for Israel

Our nation, if not the entire world continues to be horrified by the sheer atrocities surrounding the Hamas attack on Israel.

I, like many American people I am sure, have thought “what can we do to help?”

Recently, I wrote an op-ed, where I suggested embracing our PA energy natural resources as a way to offer further assistance to Israel.

However, as an elected official, I feel that I stand in a position to make the appropriate connections in our system of government, and hear more suggestions not just for me, but for the entire General Assembly to consider.

Therefore, I soon will introduce a resolution calling upon PA’s Adjutant General to request a briefing with officials in Washington to discuss ways in which our Commonwealth can offer assistance to Israel. In addition, the Adjutant General would prepare a report on the briefing and present it to the General Assembly so we can begin to timely review and hopefully take action.

No suggestion would be too small if it helps Israel try and recover.

I encourage my colleagues to join me in this effort.
