Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) Tues 8/29 6:30 pm

Ken & Janet Hoffman welcome Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) to an event at their home in Teaneck on Tuesday evening, August 29th.

Bob Casey, Jr. joined the Senate in 2007. He serves on four Senate committees: Finance; Health, Education, Labor and Pensions; Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry; and the Special Committee on Aging. He is the former Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee encompassing the Middle East and South and Central Asia.

Senator Casey has visited Israel five times during his tenure as Senator (May 2009, July 2010, April 2013, February 2016, and September 2016) to discuss cooperation between our two countries with senior Israeli officials. Senator Casey believes that supporting a strong relationship with Israel promotes U.S. security and advances our national interests.

His top foreign assistance priority is full funding for cooperative missile defense programs like Iron Dome, David’s Sling, and Arrow, as well as cooperative research and development on technologies to counter terrorists’ use of tunnels. In July 2016, Senator Casey signed a letter with 18 of his colleagues to the Armed Services committee leadership urging support for $601 million in funding for cooperative missile defense programs in Fiscal Year 2017.

Senator Casey is an original cosponsor of the bipartisan S. Res. 508, which called for the finalization of a new, robust, and long-term Memorandum of Understanding on military assistance between the United States Government and the Government of Israel.

He is also a signatory to an April 2016 letter, led by Senators Coons and Graham, which expresses the bipartisan commitment in the Senate to provide Israel with the resources it needs to counter threats to its security.
