Senator Risch (R-ID) Introduces S. 2066

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Jim Risch (R-ID) introduced a bill ‘to review United States Saudi Arabia Policy.’

Content of the bill has yet to be fully elaborated upon by Senator Risch’s office, however the politics surrounding the bill are already notable given that the Senator is a frequent ally of President Trump and therefore must write a bill that is acceptable to a President who rejected calls to blame the Saudi Government for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and a Congressional majority comprised of Senate Democrats and a few crossover Republicans who continue to seek an acceptable way to reprimand the Kingdom for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

According to reporting from Politico, Senator Risch’s bill will be an attempt to forge a solution that can pass Congress and be signed by the President
