Proposed Law: actually moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

Here is an interesting law proposal, but not from the Israeli legislature. Rather, it is from the United States Senate.

As reported, Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Dean Heller proposed a law that would take away the president's authority to waive the relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

US law has already been passed to move the embassy, but it has been held up as president after president, both Republican and Democrat, has used his authority to waive the move. This law would take away that authority, and then the original law would have to be put into effect.

The The Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act of 2015 also would require official government documents to recognize and identify Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

That means, I think, that if it passes, the Zivotovsky Supreme Court case would just go away.

  1. Except for the fact that the President could just veto this bill too.
