A few details of the Senate's Ukrainian aid bill are coming to light, via Foreign Relations chairman Bob Menendez.
The bill mirrors one passed in the House last week by providing $1 billion in U. S. loan guarantees to Ukraine but goes further by containing language allowing a 2010 restructuring of the IMF to go forward.

The committee will do a mark-up of the bill this afternoon; IMF reforms may be the main sticking point for conservatives, since those reforms may weaken United States' influence over the organization.
