Congress OKs Revised Bills on Foreign Arms Sales

CapitolDomeThe Congress has approved two bills that U.S. officials say could impact the approval process for foreign arms sales, Reuters reported Tuesday.

Andrea Shalal writes one bill would permit the House of Representatives and Senate foreign affairs committees to seek a 30-day notification of government-to-government arms delivery to other countries.

Lawmakers would also require accounts for the impact of arms sales to Middle East on the U.S. military edge under the other legislation, according to the report.

The first measure would also authorize the relocation of legacy U.S. warships to Mexico and Taiwan, Reuters reports.

Shalal writes the two bills are awaiting President Barack Obama’s approval.
