Foreign Aid Supplemental

House Majority Leader Scalise announced that the House would consider "legislation that supports Israel and holds Iran and its terrorist proxies accountable." However, it is unclear what will be included in the supplemental and if it will also contain funding for Ukraine and Taiwan. To date, Speaker Johnson has declined to put the Senate-passed $95.3 billion supplemental on the House floor, but he's struggled for a war funding formula acceptable to his conference. Some GOP lawmakers oppose additional Ukraine aid absent certain conditions or new security measures at the U.S. southern border. President Joe Biden wants the House to simply clear the Senate bill. President Biden has been in communication with Speaker Johnson, Senate Majority Leader Schumer, Senate Minority Leader McConnell, and House Minority Leader Jeffries, to push the House to pass supplemental funding as soon as possible.
