Speaker Johnson to take up Ukraine aid bill soon

by ian

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) is taking up a supplemental vote on the contentious Ukraine aid soon.

Republicans have largely been against additional aid to Ukraine, while Democrats have been mostly supportive of the Eastern European country. The constant conflict has led to a halt in additional funds in both the House and Senate.

But according to Republican Rep. Don Bacon (Neb.), Johnson will make Ukraine a top priority after recess even if it costs him the speakership.
