The US Senate Approves Ukraine Aid Package

Senate Approves Huge Foreign Aid Package, but House May Block Its Path to President Biden’s Signature

On Sunday, the United States Senate overwhelmingly approved a huge foreign aid package that would send tens of billions of dollars to Ukraine. Out of a total package of 95 billion dollars, up to 60 billion dollars would go to Ukraine, with the rest shared between Israel and Taiwan.

However, it is still unclear whether the package will even advance to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives for final approval. The votes were divided 67–27 in the Senate, making it easily arranged for approval. However, the future of the aid package remains uncertain as it moves through the legislative process.

The Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, hasn’t said if he even plans to let the package go to a House vote. The Senate will vote on the final approval of the package in the middle of the week, requiring a simple majority to pass. If it does make it through both chambers, it will then head to President Biden for his signature before becoming law.
