Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) voted for H.Res. 326 – Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding United States efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a negotiated two-state solution, which was approved by the House.

“Today the House of Representatives affirmed support for a two-state solution in spite of the Trump Administration’s efforts to reverse this long-standing policy. For decades, previous United States and Israeli administrations have strived to attain a peace agreement that would establish a Palestinian state in peaceful co-existence alongside a sovereign Israel. Unilateral annexation in the West Bank would only exacerbate the crisis,” said Larson.

In November, Larson joined his colleagues in sending a letter to Secretary Pompeo urging the Trump Administration to end their policy of undermining a two-state solution.
