Washington, DC—The Coalition for a Democratic Syria (CDS) fully supports two bipartisan bills introduced in the Congress this week: the Syria Democratic Transition Act of 2013 introduced by U.S. Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Marco Rubio (R-FL), and the Free Syria Act of 2013 introduced by Representatives Eliot L. Engel (NY-16), Mike Rogers (MI-8), and Brad Sherman (CA-30). These bills authorize robust U.S. assistance for Syrian civilians and innocent victims of the conflict, expand sanctions against the government of Bashar al-Assad, and provide for systematic support of the pro-democracy Syrian opposition.
