Young, Colleagues Request Funding to Strengthen U.S.-Israel Relationship
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) joined U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) and a group of Senate colleagues in sending a letter to Senate appropriators urging them to fund the U.S.-Israel cybersecurity cooperation grant program created through Senators Young and Rosen’s U.S.-Israel Cybersecurity Cooperation Enhancement Act via the FY2022 National Defense Authorization Act.
“We write to respectfully request that you provide $2 million for the U.S.-Israel Homeland Security Program and $6 million for the U.S.-Israel cybersecurity cooperation grant program,” wrote the Senators in support of the U.S.-Israel security programs. “Israel has emerged as a global leader in developing technologies for homeland security, including cybersecurity. Recognizing Israel’s expertise, the United States is partnering with Israel through the U.S.-Israel Homeland Security Program to advance first responder technologies; secure critical infrastructure and public facilities; provide maritime, aviation, and border security; and prevent and respond to cyber-attacks.”
