Finally! Via the Washington Post:

The House approved a $95 billion package of foreign aid bills that would provide funding for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, among other priorities. The bills moved forward despite a far-right threat to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) if he advanced Ukraine aid.

The House voted separately Saturday on the four bills. The House considered a fifth bill of GOP priorities to secure the border, but it failed because it required a two-thirds vote, unlike the other bills, which need a simple majority.
