Stop Funding for Terrorism Act

This bill amends the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 with respect to requirements the Department of State must meet to rescind any determination that the government of a foreign country:

  • has repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism; and
  • for this reason may not receive assistance under the Act, the Food for Peace Act, the Peace Corps Act, or the Export-Import Bank Act of 1945.

The State Department may rescind such a determination and waive the prohibition on assistance only if, in addition to other existing requirements for rescission and waiver, Congress enacts a joint resolution of approval according to a specified procedure.
