Mike Johnson's Ukraine-Israel Package Faces Critical House Vote

·1 min

The House is scheduled to vote on advancing a $95 billion foreign aid and weapons package. The package is aimed at helping Ukraine withstand Russia’s invasion and providing support to Israel in its recent hostilities with Iran. Despite dissenting Republicans threatening to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson over the proposal, he has pushed the package through the chamber. Johnson is expected to rely on votes from Democrats to clear a procedural hurdle. The passing of the rule represents a significant step forward for the package.
