Tuesday, April 23, 2024

WASHINGTON – Senator Stabenow released the following statement after a major bipartisan national security bill passed the U.S. Senate. The legislation provides critical aid to Ukraine, supports Israel’s defense against Hamas and Iran, delivers critical humanitarian aid in Gaza, and supports American allies in the Indo-Pacific. This bill also limits the flow of fentanyl into the U.S.

“Today’s vote sends a message at a critical time in our history about America’s standing in the world – that we are still a beacon of democracy for nations everywhere, that our country remains grounded in our American values of freedom, that our allies can continue to count on our leadership, and that our enemies know our resolve. Although the path to final passage was painstaking, today’s vote is a victory for our national security and democracy across the globe.”
