US House bills for aid to Ukraine and Israel scheduled for Wednesday filing

On Wednesday, US House of Representatives speaker Mike Johnson announced that the text of four bills offering aid to Ukraine, Israel and the Indo-Pacific would be filed "soon today", with a fourth bill containing "other measures to confront Russia, China and Iran" to be posted later in the day.

Johnson texted House members saying that the House Rules committee would also release text on a distinct border security bill. The House is scheduled to vote on its final passage on Saturday evening, allowing ample time for discussion and potential amendments.

In his Wednesday message, Johnson emphasised that the three bills "will fund America’s national security interests and allies in Israel, the Indo-Pacific, and Ukraine, including a loan structure for aid, and enhanced strategy and accountability".

He mentioned that the fourth bill would encompass the Repo Act, TikTok legislation, and sanctions, although he did not provide further details in his message.
