Lawmakers Step Up Ukraine Aid Urgency
Good morning. President Joe Biden will deliver the State of the Union address tonight. (Early bedtime advocates are disheartened it will once again start at 9 p.m. ET, but they pledge to continue the fight for next year’s address to begin at a reasonable hour.)

Lawmakers from both chambers received a classified briefing on Monday night from top administration officials about the state of Russia’s unprovoked and brutal war of aggression in Ukraine.
As they left the briefings, members emphasized that Congress needs to quickly approve billions of dollars in new assistance for Ukraine.
