Schumer Says the Senate Will Vote on Ukraine-Border Security Package Next Week

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced Thursday that Senate negotiators will unveil the long-awaited text of a bill funding the war in Ukraine and addressing border security this weekend, and senators will come back to the Capitol early next week to consider the legislation.

Schumer said he expects to schedule the first vote on proceeding to the controversial package for Wednesday, giving senators a chance to pass it before the two-week Presidents Day recess.

“I want members to be aware that we plan to post the full text of the national security supplemental as early as tomorrow, no later than Sunday,” Schumer announced. “That will give members plenty of time to read the bill before voting on it.”
