EGYPT (WKOW) -- With no end to the chaos in Egypt, lawmakers remain at odds on U.S. financial support to the country.
U.S. Officials say the Obama Administration is "reprogramming" some fund to the country while reviewing the situation. In effect, that temporarily holds up military aid to Egypt. However, no decision has been made to permanently cut the funds.
Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin is upset about the move.
"It needs to be counted upon to preserve the peace between our very close ally Israel and Egypt," Baldwin said. "I would have a very different view if I felt there was any sign that Egypt and Israel were not going to remain allies."
Baldwin said the more than $1 billion in foreign aid should stay in the country.
