U.S. Senate acts
The Senate on Wednesday defeated a proposal to cut off U.S. aid to Egypt. The measure was pushed by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, after the military takeover in Egypt.
Before the vote, Paul noted that the law is clear: Aid must end to a government where there is a military coup.
But the measure, which would have shut off $1.5 billion in aid to Cairo, got the backing of only 13 senators.
