Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced a bill seeking to block an upcoming sale of U.S. weaponry to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The bill is seemingly in response to an arms sale to the UAE that was approved by the State Department on May 3, 2019. The potential sale includes several upgrades to various Patriot missile systems and is valued at $2.73 billion USD. The bill comes just one day after Sen. Paul introduced legislation seeking to block a similar sale to Bahrain.
