Leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives panel in charge of aid to Egypt proposed that military aid be kept at $1.3 billion next year, subject to conditions including the government planning and holding elections. U.S. law bars aid to countries where there has been a military coup. Lawmakers say that determination is up to the Obama administration, not Congress.
