Budzinski Votes to Combat Fentanyl, Sanction Iran and Provide Aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Nikki Budzinski (IL-13) released the following statement on her votes to pass four bipartisan bills out of the House of Representatives that will combat the fentanyl crisis, sanction Iran and provide critical aid to our allies in Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. 

“For months, I’ve been calling on House GOP leaders to bring forward comprehensive legislation to support our allies abroad, and I’m glad that we were able to pass bipartisan legislation that aids Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan as they face tyranny and terror. I’m also glad that this legislation came alongside a bipartisan effort to sanction Iran and combat the fentanyl epidemic taking lives across the country. While I continue to urge my colleagues across the aisle to come to the table on a bipartisan immigration and border security package, I’m encouraged by the progress we were able to make with the passage of today’s bills.”
