House Republicans reveal foreign aid bills for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan

by | Apr 17, 2024

House Republicans unveiled the text of their Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan aid bills on Wednesday, following months of delay.
The three bills allocate approximately $26 billion for Israel, $61 billion for Ukraine, and $8.12 billion for Taiwan and the Indo-Pacific region.

The proposals faced immediate criticism from House Speaker Mike Johnson's (R-La.) conservative wing, posing challenges to their passage. Johnson is likely to require Democratic assistance to advance all three bills to the House floor and secure their approval.

The Ukraine aid bill incorporates several provisions aimed at appeasing GOP hardliners, such as oversight measures to guarantee proper fund utilization and a condition stipulating that Ukraine must engage in a loan agreement to reimburse economic assistance funds.

The Israel segment encompasses approximately $9.5 billion in humanitarian aid for Ukraine and Gaza, along with allocations for global refugee and disaster assistance programs.
