ANCA calls on congressional leaders to defend Artsakh security  provisions; expand assistance 

ANCA calls on congressional leaders to defend Artsakh security  provisions; expand assistance 

ArmInfo. Armenian National Committee of Armenia launches grassroots letter campaign at anca.org/takeaction to address key Pro-Armenian appropriations and  defense measures on the Docket, the press service of ANCA informs.  

The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have returned from the  August recess and are set to begin consideration of two key Armenian  National Committee of America (ANCA)-backed pro-Armenia and Artsakh  measures dealing with expanded U.S.  assistance to the region and  efforts to ensure Artsakh security.  

First, the Senate Appropriations Committee will be voting on the  Fiscal Year 2020 foreign aid bill, a far-ranging multi-billion  measure that touches on a number of ANCA policy priorities.  Prior to  the August recess, the U.S. House had adopted two ANCA- backed  amendments that we are encouraging Senators to include in their  version of the foreign aid bill. The first, the Speier Amendment,  allocates an additional $40 million in democracy development  assistance, while the second, the Cox Amendment, appropriated  continued funding for de-mining and other humanitarian programs in  Artsakh.  

Meanwhile, key leaders of the U.S. House and Senate Armed Services  Committees will be meeting to serve on a "conference committee"  responsible with reconciling the House and Senate versions of a major  defense authorization bill - known as the National Defense  Authorization Act (NDAA).  During negotiations, legislators are  encouraged to ensure that two vital pro-Artsakh amendments - the  Sherman and Chu Amendments - are included in the final version of  this legislation that is sent to the White House for the President's  signature.  

ANCA advocates across the U.S. have been contacting their legislators  through the organization's March to Justice action portal -  anca.org/takeaction - to encourage legislators to ensure expanded  U.S. assistance to Artsakh and Armenia and defend the key pro-Artsakh  amendments to the NDAA.
