The US and the European Union are considering a measure that would make telecommunications equipment classified as essential.
It would also require Israel to remove all telecommunications equipment from its territories and the occupied Palestinian territories.
The proposed bill has been discussed in US congressmen and members of the European Parliament.
The bill was presented by Senator John Barrasso, a Republican from Wyoming, in September.
According to Barrasso’s office, the legislation would apply to the Israeli-occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Israel has long complained that such a bill would hurt its relations with the US and other European nations, and it has argued that the legislation will not affect its ability to sell and acquire telecom equipment.
A recent study from the RAND Corporation, however, found that the bill would increase the cost of such equipment, and that it would increase Israel’s reliance on American telecommunications equipment.
The study also found that telecommunications equipment manufacturers in the US would suffer.
US lawmakers and industry analysts have argued that Israeli-US trade and trade ties would be adversely affected if the bill were passed.
According the Congressional Research Service, US exports to Israel are worth $4.2 billion a year, compared to a US average of $1.4 billion.
The report found that Israel’s exports of telecom equipment to the US have increased from $1 billion in 2003 to $6.7 billion in 2017.
US Congressmen have also argued that Israel could be compelled to remove certain telecommunications equipment that is not essential, which could increase costs.
The US Congress is considering a bill that would require Israel’s government to remove the Israeli telecommunications equipment designation from its territory.
The legislation would also make telecommunications technology considered essential for US telecommunications companies to be classified as either “essential,” “nonessential” or “non-essential” according to the Foreign Trade Commission.
According a December 2015 report by the US Congressional Research service, “In many cases, equipment can be classified with the intention of making it less accessible or difficult to use, as in the case of certain radios, satellite receivers, and computer hardware.
Israel’s current telecommunications infrastructure is considered essential to its national security, and Israel has the ability to acquire equipment for national security purposes.”
In addition to the bill, the US Congress has also passed a bill in November that would provide funds to Israel for purchasing and maintaining its military infrastructure.
In addition, a 2016 bill, passed by the Senate, would also authorize US companies to transfer funds to the State of Israel to help support the military needs of the country.
The new legislation, the Telecommunications Act of 2016, also requires the US to certify that the Israeli Government has implemented a comprehensive telecommunications infrastructure plan to ensure that it has all necessary equipment and is providing the required services to support the civilian population.
US congress members and industry leaders have argued against the bill.
According one bill co-sponsored by Senator Barrasso and Representative David Cicilline, the bill has the support of several US senators, including Senator Rand Paul, a Democrat from Kentucky.
However, other members of Congress have expressed concern over the bill’s impact on Israeli-Israeli relations.
In March, Representative Joe Heck, a Nevada Republican, introduced a bill with Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a Utah Republican, that would prohibit the US from providing military assistance to Israel unless the country is providing “complete and equal” access to its telecommunications infrastructure.
US Representatives Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican, and Steve Israel, a member of the House of Representatives, have also pushed for the bill to be withdrawn.
According Meadows, the law would “preemptively bar the sale of US telecommunications equipment to Israel in light of Israel’s decision to unilaterally annex East Jerusalem and the West Bank, which is considered to be occupied territory.”
The current bill has also been referred to the Congressional Subcommittee on International Trade and Trade Policy.
According an October 2016 report by The Wall Street Journal, “Some lawmakers and trade experts say the legislation could have unintended consequences that could affect US trade relations with Israel, including with countries such as China and Brazil, which have lobbied for more liberal telecommunications laws.”
US President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized the Obama administration for supporting a bill and for not having a better solution for Israel’s problems with telecommunications equipment and for other concerns.
He also criticized Congress for having passed legislation that is so weak, and has said that he will veto it.
The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
