House lawmakers unveil $66B foreign aid, border supplemental

Measure excludes Senate bill’s $10 billion for humanitarian aid while lopping off some $13 billion in nondefense funding for Ukraine

A bipartisan group of House lawmakers released a $66.3 billion foreign aid and border package Friday that backers hope will be an alternative to the Senate-passed national security supplemental.

The newly unveiled legislation includes military-only assistance for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan — a departure from the $95.3 billion bill championed by senators that also has money designated for humanitarian and economic support.
