House passesxa0bill providing aid to Indo-Pacific region

·1 min

The House is scheduled to vote on a foreign aid package on Saturday. The package includes aid for Ukraine, Israel, and the Indo-Pacific Region. More Democrats than Republicans supported advancing the package, which is seen as a setback for House Speaker Mike Johnson. The House package closely resembles a bill passed by the Senate earlier this year, but includes additional GOP priorities such as sanctions on Iran and a potential TikTok ban. President Joe Biden has been urging Congress to pass the aid package. The speaker’s position on the bill changed following recent events, including Iran’s attack on Israel.
