Several area legislators strongly support $95 billion foreign aid package awaiting House vote — but some don’t


The US House of Representatives is divided on a $95 billion foreign aid package, called the National Security Act of 2024, that would provide aid to Ukraine, Israel, and other nations. The bill has already passed in the Senate with bipartisan support, but Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson has not yet allowed a vote. The proposed aid includes $60 billion for Ukraine, $14.1 billion for Israel’s military, over $8 billion to deter Chinese aggression and about $9.2 billion in humanitarian aid for war zones. Several Democrats, including Reps. Sean Casten, Raja Krishnamoorthi, Brad Schneider, and Bill Foster have stated they will support the bill, while Democratic Rep. Delia Ramirez opposes it due to US support for Israel. Other representatives have not publicly stated their positions.
