citing NBC.

The vote was 68-29 on sweeping legislation that will keep the
government funded through next fall and overhaul election laws in
an attempt to prevent another Jan. 6. It came after votes on a
potpourri of amendments, including landmark workplace protections
for pregnant and breastfeeding employees.

The bill also includes nearly $45 billion of additional
military, economic and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine.
