U.S. House Passes $40 Billion Ukraine Aid Bill

The Senate was forced to postpone final passage of a $40 billion Ukraine aid package after Senator Rand Paul refused to allow the vote unless language he demanded was added.

The Senate, where work can be slowed by objections from one senator, is now expected to vote on the legislation and send it to President Joe Biden’s desk for his signature next week.
