In addition to numerous monetary provisions, the bill will "expand cooperation between the United States and Israel in homeland security" and "offer the Air Force of Israel additional training and exercise opportunities in the United States". The bill extends loan guarantees totalling $9 billion dollars to Israel and pledges hundreds of millions of dollars in military equipment to the foreign power. It states "It is the policy of the United States to reaffirm our unwavering commitment to the security of the State of Israel as a Jewish state".
Republican Senator Johnny Isakson of Georgia, who introduced the bill along with Barbara Boxer on March 6 2012, stated "There should not be one scintilla of light between the positions of Republicans and Democrats on the issue of the security of Israel. I am proud to join my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, in both chambers, in reaffirming the United States' commitment to Israel through this critically important legislation." Isakson, a former realtor and Georgia state representative, became a Congressman in 1999 and a Senator in 2005.
