The United States Senate, on Tuesday (Feb 13) voted to pass a $95.34 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. However, the bill will likely not pass in the Republican-led House of Representatives as Speaker Mike Johnson rejected the bill as it was being written. 

The lawmakers in the upper chamber of the US Congress approved the measure in a pre-dawn vote. The measure garnered 70 votes in favour and 29 against, well above the 60-vote threshold for passage.

The bill has now been sent to the legislation on to the House.
