H.R. 6125 Emergency Aid to Israel

(November 2, 2023)

A $14.5 billion emergency aid package was approved for Israel by the House of Representatives. The bill included nearly $200 million more than in the package proposed by the administration. The 226-196 vote fell almost entirely along party lines, with 12 Democrats joining all but two Republicans. The Republicans rejected the White House request for a $106 billion package that included funds for Ukraine, allies in the Indo-Pacific, and U.S. border security. Instead, the bill cut funding for the Internal Revenue Service.

The president threatened to veto the bill, and the Senate said it would not consider it.
