U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC) and U.S. Representative Victoria Spartz (R-IN) have introduced the American Ammo in Defense of Ukraine Act. The legislation will waive export criteria so donations from American ammunition manufacturers can reach Ukraine faster. Twenty seven Members joined Reps. Hudson and Spartz as original cosponsors.

"In the face of Russia's invasion, Ukrainian President Zelensky announced he 'needed ammunition, not a ride.' The American Ammo in Defense of Ukraine Act will do just that by cutting red tape to ensure American ammunition can reach Ukraine faster," said Rep. Hudson. "America must support Ukraine's self-defense and I appreciate Congresswoman Spartz and our colleagues for joining this common sense bill."

"The American Ammo in Defense of Ukraine Act is important legislation which would improve speed and agility in dealing with the current crisis in Ukraine," said Rep. Spartz. "Maximizing efficiency, and cutting bureaucratic red tape is essential in dealing with any crisis effectively."

Last week, U.S. ammunition manufacturer AMMO, Inc. plans to send 1 million rounds of ammunition to Ukraine with support from North Carolinian Richard Childress. Rep. Hudson's bill would make it easier for manufacturers like AMMO, Inc. to get this ammunition to Ukraine by authorizing the President to waive Department of State and Department of Commerce export criteria and transportation costs on ammunition.

Original cosponsors include Reps. Bob Good, Gregory F. Murphy, M.D., Dan Crenshaw, David B McKinley P.E., Fred Upton, Tom Emmer, Clay Higgins, Brian Babin, Troy Balderson, Jake LaTurner, Ted Budd, Diana Harshbarger, Brian Mast, Adam Kinzinger, Mike Kelly, David Rouzer, Randy Feenstra, David Kustoff, Andrew R. Garbarino, Bob Gibbs, Virginia Foxx, Dan Newhouse, Michael Guest, Kelly Armstrong, Jake Ellzey, Neal Dunn, M.D., and Elise Stefanik.
