US House votes to stop aid to Saudi Arabia

Reuters: House Votes to Block Aid for Saudi Arabia

Apparently the House voted to remove $25,000 from the $19.4 Billion on foreign aid the US sends Saudi Arabia. That particular $25,000 had other discounts on hardware and military training attached.

Update: It turns out the Reuters story is incorrect. The $19.4B is the entire aid package which spans many countries, Saudi Arabia's portion was $25,000 (plus incentives), and this was completely removed. Thank you to Brian Carnell for uncovering this error!
