WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Tuesday urgently called for House Republicans to bring a $95.3 billion aid package for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan to a vote, warning that refusal to take up the bill would be “playing into Putin’s hands.”

The Senate passed the measure in the wee hours of Tuesday.

Kansas Senators Jerry Moran supported the aid; Roger Marshall did not.
