S.J.Res.39. Senators Rand Paul (R-KY), Chris Murphy (D-CT), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Al Franken (D-MN) introduced a joint resolution to block the sale of $1.15 billion worth of tanks and other military equipment to Saudi Arabia on account of the Kingdom’s indiscriminate bombing campaign in Yemen, which is responsible for roughly two-thirds of the civilian casualties in Yemen’s civil War. The vote was on a motion to table the resolution, or in other words to not vote on it, so Peace Action opposed the motion to table. Passed, 71-27.
