The U.S. House on Saturday voted on a bipartisan basis to pass a $95 billion foreign aid package for Ukraine, Israel and the Indo-Pacific.

Why it matters: The vote puts Congress on track to send long sought-after aid to Ukraine more than two months after similar legislation was sent over from the Senate.

Driving the news: The package was passed in four separate bills, one each for Israel, Ukraine and the Indo-Pacific and another containing sanctions on Russia, China and Iran, including the REPO Act and TikTok ban legislation.

  • Each bill passed by substantial bipartisan majorities with conservatives as the largest bloc in opposition.
  • The package now heads to the Senate, which is expected to stay in session through next week to pass it.
The backdrop: The vote comes after Democrats took several rare steps to help the bill overcome key procedural hurdles.
  • House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) moved forward with the legislation despite fierce opposition and threats of removal from his rebellious right flank, who decried the funding for Ukraine and lack of border policy.
