Garnering 63 affirmative votes, the legislation has cleared a crucial hurdle towards becoming law. The ongoing voting process continues to affirm the Senate's support for the bill.
The next step for the legislation is to proceed to the House of Representatives, which is under Republican control. The Speaker of the House, Republican Mike Johnson, has hinted at possible reluctance to bring the bill to a vote, casting uncertainty over its immediate future.
For the bill to be enacted into law, it requires the concurrence of both chambers of Congress, after which it would be presented to President Joe Biden for his signature. This development marks a significant moment in the U.S. legislative process, emphasizing the country's commitment to supporting Ukraine amid ongoing challenges.
