Mike JohnsonSpeaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) has unveiled his plan to move foreign aid through the House, pitching four separate bills to address aid for Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan and other national security priorities.

Johnson rolled out his proposal during a closed-door House GOP conference meeting on Monday, after months of delaying any decisions on the politically prickly topic.

The plan — according to two GOP lawmakers at the meeting — is to move the four bills under one procedural rule that would allow for an amendment process.

The fourth national security-related bill, according to one of the GOP lawmakers, would include a TikTok ban, a provision to allow the U.S. to use seized Russian assets to assist Ukraine, a lend-lease act for military aid and convertible loans for humanitarian relief.
