Stabenow Statement on Senate Passing Bill to Protect our National Security

Tuesday, February 13, 2024

WASHINGTON – Senator Stabenow released the following statement after a critical bipartisan national security bill passed the U.S. Senate. The legislation provides crucial aid to Ukraine in the war against Russia, helps Israel defend itself from Hamas, delivers critical humanitarian aid to innocent civilians in Gaza, and includes support for our allies in the Indo-Pacific. This bill also includes policy to limit the flow of fentanyl into the U.S.

“The Senate did the right thing today by passing this consequential legislation to protect our national security and democracy around the world. Republicans finally stepped up and joined Democrats to get this done. Now, we look to the House to stand up to Vladimir Putin and Hamas, deliver critical humanitarian aid to innocent civilians in Gaza, and protect Americans from dangerous drugs crossing our borders.”
