Funding For Ukraine
This week President Biden plans to request a supplemental appropriation to fund more military and economic aid for Ukraine. Majority Leader Hoyer said the House will "stand ready to act" on the request. The House also plans to consider a Senate-passed measure, known as the Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act (S 3522), introduced by Senators Cardin, Shaheen, Wicker and Cornyn. It would boost Biden's authority to enter into agreements to lend or lease weapons to Ukraine, streamlining the process.
