The Senate on Thursday evening passed a $1.5 trillion spending bill with $13.6 billion in aid to Ukraine, sending the measure to the White House with bipartisan support.

President Joe Biden is expected to sign the Omnibus Appropriations bill after the Senate passed it 68-31.

The legislation passed in the House one day prior after being introduced just hours before.

Republican Senators who voted in support of the bill include John Barrasso, Roy Blunt, Shelly Moore Capito, Susan Collins, John Cornyn, Jodi Ernst, Lindsey Graham, Chuck Grassley, Cindy Hyde-Smith, Mitch McConnell, Jerry Moran, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Portman, Richard Shelby, John Thune, Tommy Tuberville, Roger Wicker and Todd Young, according to the Senate Press Gallery. Repblican Sen. Jim Inhofe did not vote.

The House took a bill on Haiti that had already passed both chambers of Congress, then added more than 2,700-pages to create the spending bill that passed, H.R. 2471.

The bill has been criticized for containing the first congressional earmarks in more than a decade.
