Senate Passes Last-Minute Bill to Avoid Government Shutdown, Including $12B for Ukraine

In a last-minute frenzy, the Senate has passed a stopgap bill that will avert a government shutdown.

The bill will fund the government through December 16.

Government agencies will receive funding, but the bill also includes a controversial $12.3B financing for Ukraine, including military and economic assistance.

Additionally, President Biden will be given the authority to direct the drawdown of up to nearly $4B to transfer excess weapons from stocks in the US to Ukraine.

This comes amid escalated tensions with Russia (if that’s possible) as they announced plans to illegally annex 4 regions of Ukraine and defend them by all means necessary.

Funding sent to Ukraine from the US consistently meets resistance among critics who say the US has ample domestic financial concerns without sending money overseas. Still, the US is spearheading efforts along with the UN to bolster the country, which has been suffering under Russian invasion for months.
