Members of Congress have released some $40 million of frozen U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority, according to an Associated Press report.

The $187 million in economic and humanitarian assistance was frozen in September 2011 after the PA submitted a unilateral bid for UN membership.

The funds were released as a result of intense lobbying on the part of the Obama administration.
