The House voted to cut off American military aid to Jordan in reprisal for its support of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein during the Persian Gulf War. The lawmakers gave President Bush the authority to waive the cutoff if certain conditions are met, principally bilateral negotiation with Israel. Later, the House incorporated the provision into a separate, $15.3-billion foreign-aid bill for 1992 that it passed.
