Editor’s Note: This story mentions an amendment by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene that didn’t end up making it into the bill itself that cleared the U.S. House.


Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced an amendment to a supplemental funding bill for Ukraine that would require members of Congress who vote in favor to enlist in the Ukrainian military.

The funding bill is part of a larger legislative package that combines four bills providing $26.4 billion to Israel, $60.8 billion to Ukraine, $8.1 billion to counter China and aid Taiwan, and other defense measures.

“Any Member of Congress who votes in favor of this Act shall be required to conscript in the Ukrainian military,” the amendment reads.

The House Speaker plans to hold a single vote on the combined package, then separate votes on each individual bill if passed.

Greene’s amendment aims to force those supporting Ukraine aid to personally take part in the conflict.

The legislative package and Greene’s amendment raise issues around congressional authorization of foreign aid and military involvement.
