Institute for Palestine Studies announces useful database of anti-Palestinian legislation

By the Institute for Palestine Studies (IPS)

Congress plays a vital role in shaping U.S. involvement in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by controlling funds and exerting political pressure that can enable or constrain the policies of the president.
The Congressional Monitor Database, published by the Institute for Palestine Studies (IPS), is a powerful research tool that puts all of the bills and resolutions addressing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since 2001 at your fingertips.

This Database is Available Online for FREE.

The Congressional Monitor Database gives you:

  • Quick, concise summaries that provide a guide to the content of legislation and add context giving you insight into its intent, origins, and consequences.
  • Instant access to the full text of legislation and the entire Congressional Record.
  • Topic Search allows you to quickly view legislation on key issues such as military or economic aid, refugees, and Jerusalem.
  • Sponsor/Cosponsor Search allows you to search legislation by the name of the Senators and Representatives who sponsor and support it.
