House Foreign Affairs Committee Marks Up H.R. 2037

On June 26th, 2019 the House Foreign Affairs Committee considered Rep. Tom Malinowski’s (D-NJ07) “Saudi Arabia and Human Rights Accountability Act of 2019.”

The bill was introduced on April 2, 2019 and, if enacted, instructs the Director of National Intelligence to produce a report outlining the actors responsible for last October’s murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Upon completion of the report, the bill instructs that sanctions related to visas and travel to the United States be placed on those found responsible in the report.

The bill allows for these sanctions to be lifted if and when Saudi Arabia exhibits improvement in several areas related to human rights.
