Senator Paul Introduces S.J Res 20

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced a bill seeking to block an upcoming sale of U.S. weaponry to the nation of Bahrain. The bill is most likely in reference to a recent sale approved by the State Department on May 6, 2019 that includes several types of missiles and technologies related to Bahrain’s obtaining of F-16 block 70 aircraft, as well as modifications to Bahrain’s F-16V. The deal itself is valued at $750 million USD. Last year Senator Paul tried to block a sale of weapons to Bahrain, however, his legislation did not pass.
