Rep. Schiff submits NDAA amendment calling for immediate release of Armenian POWS

Congressman Adam Schiff has introduced a bi-partisan amendment to the FY2023 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) calling for Azerbaijan’s immediate release of Armenian POWs and captured civilians.

Amendment #698 is co-sponsored by Reps. Don Beyer (D-VA), Congressman Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), U.S. Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-CA), Katherine Clark (D-MA), Jim Costa (D-CA), Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL), Tom Malinowski (D-NJ), Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ), Janice Schakowsky (D-IL), and Jackie Speier (D-CA).

The ANCA is leading a grassroots effort to secure additional co-sponsors prior to next week’s House Rules Committee consideration of the amendment.

NDAA amendments ruled “in order” by the House Rules Committee will be voted on by the full U.S. House.
