The United States Senate has approved a large foreign aid package with tens of billions of dollars intended for Ukraine. Out of the 95 billion dollars in the package, approximately 60 billion dollars would go to Ukraine while the rest would be shared between Israel and Taiwan. However, it is still unclear whether the package will advance to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives for further consideration.
The Senate voted on the final approval of the package and requires a simple majority to pass. Despite this, it is unlikely to become law as the Republican majority in the House of Representatives is unlikely to pass it. The Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, has not indicated whether he plans to let the package go to a House vote. It is important to note that the aid package has not yet passed the Senate as previously stated.
Meanwhile, there are various categories of items grouped together such as handguns, shotguns, speakers, shipping services, and coffee machines.
