Broad Ukraine Aid, Sanctions Bill Prepped In Senate

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are working on an aid package for Ukraine as Russia puts Crimea under a military lock-down.

Last week, the House approved one-billion dollars in loan guarantees for Ukraine. Senate legislation includes the loan guarantee and additional aid for Ukraine. It would also include sanctions against Russia for deploying troops into Ukraine's Crimean region.

Details of the legislation are still being worked out in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
