The Senate voted 72-22 today to pass President Nixon’s $1.035 billion supplementary foreign military aid bill, clearing the way for an appropriation measure for the $500 million in military aid to Israel authorized earlier. The measure now goes to a Senate-House Conference committee which is expected to act favorably and speedy passage by both houses seems assured.
