U.S. Senate border bill passes procedural vote, could lead to floor discussion by Tuesday

(Washington, DC)  —  The Senate is moving forward with a $95-billion-dollar aid bill for Ukraine and Israel, but its fate in the House is uncertain.  

The money, which is for Ukraine’s defense against the Russian invasion and for Israeli security assistance, passed a Senate procedural vote with the help of 18 Republicans in a rare Sunday session. This happened despite former President Trump’s opposition.

If the bill passes the Senate, which leaders hope could happen as soon as Tuesday, it will head to the House where many Republicans have expressed opposition.
