Senate Reaches Deal on Ukraine Aid Omitting IMF Provision

U.S. senators reached agreement on legislation to aid Ukraine after Majority Leader Harry Reid abandoned a provision opposed by Republicans that would have boosted the International Monetary Fund.

The deal sets up a March 27 vote on final passage, Reid said on the Senate floor tonight. The Nevada Democrat told reporters earlier today that he would drop language boosting the U.S. share, or quota, for the IMF and implementing a 2010 international accord giving rising economies more voice.
