The House and Senate passed a $2.1 billion emergency security supplemental bill July 29 that fully reimburses the National Guard for its role in protecting the U.S. Capitol after the Jan. 6 insurrection. It also provides relief for Afghan interpreters who helped the U.S. during the war and significantly increases the number of authorized Special Immigrant Visas. The bill now heads to President Joe Biden’s desk for his signature with just two days left before the Guard’s funding runs out.
