The US Army is considering multiyear contracts for munitions to assist Ukraine.

The Army is considering which munitions programs could be more beneficial to both Ukraine and the US if Congress authorizes these replenishment supplies to Ukraine.

The Pentagon would be granted wartime procurement powers through bipartisan legislation introduced in the Senate, allowing it to use multiyear contracts to buy large amounts of high-priority munitions to help Ukraine fight Russia and replenish US reserves.

The Pentagon and some lawmakers wanted a critical munitions acquisition fund in the annual defense authorization bill, but Senate appropriators rejected it. So instead, the proposed legislation is an amendment.
