Congress Expected to Approve Final Version of Ukraine Aid Bill

Posted March 29th, 2014 @ 6:35pm by KFBK News

Ukraine will likely get approval for one-billion dollars in loan guarantees next week.

Congress is expected to approve a final version of an aid bill along with sanctions on Russia over its annexation of Crimea.

The House and Senate passed similar measures last week. However on Friday, the Republican led House delayed action on the final bill.

President Obama has already ordered some sanctions against Moscow but many lawmakers want to broaden US penalties.
