Brad Schneider


Brad Schneider represents the 10th District of Illinois in the U.S. House of Representatives. Schneider used his perspective and experience to take key leadership roles on major initiatives designed to strengthen the US-Israel relationship, and to promote peace by preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. In 2013, the House unanimously passed his bill, the Israel Qualitative Enhancement Act, which helps ensure Israel is equipped to defend herself against growing, diverse threats.  And just this past December, the President signed into law the Hizballah International Financing Prevention Act, legislation he introduced in 2014.

"I came to Congress as a life-long friend of Israel. I first visited Israel in 1983 and have returned more than 15 times, most recently last year.  I know that there is no more important strategic partner for the United States in the Middle East than Israel. I will diligently continue my strong advocacy for the US – Israel relationship to ensure that Congress remains actively and constructively engaged in preserving this critical strategic relationship." - Congressman Schneider
