Cong Amo, Magaziner Vote For 95 Billion Dollar Foreign Aid Package

The House has approved a 95-billion-dollar foreign aid package in a rare Saturday session. The massive Ukraine aid bill which passed by a 311-to-112 vote on Saturday now heads to the Senate along with smaller funding bills for Israel and Taiwan. The two Rhode Island Congressmen Seth Magaziner and Gabe Amo voted in favor of the measures.

“After months of reckless delays and obstruction by a minority of Republicans in the House, I am glad we are finally taking bipartisan action to show that America will keep its word and meet the moment,” said Congressman Amo. “Advancing this package supports our democratic allies in Ukraine, Israel and the Indo-Pacific; provides essential humanitarian assistance to civilians in harm’s way; and imposes strict sanctions on Iran for its destabilizing actions in the region.”

Several lawmakers were seen waiving small Ukrainian flags and cheering upon the Ukrainian bill's passage. The House also approved a bill that would force Tik-Toks' parent company to sell the social media platform.
