House GOP plans to vote Thursday on Israel aid bill

posted in: Politics | 0

House Republicans are aiming to move forward with a bill to provide aid to Israel, with GOP leadership announcing a Thursday vote during a conference call Sunday night.

It will be a stand-alone Israel bill with a price tag of $14.5 billion, Republican leaders announced, while arguing it is “fully paid for,” according to two people familiar with the call.

They also revealed plans to move on legislation targeting Iranian oil sales, including putting previous sanctions back into place, one of these people said.

This plan comes after Speaker Mike Johnson announced during a recent Fox News interview with Sean Hannity that he supports separating Israel and Ukraine aid. It is one of his first calls after winning the gavel last week.
