House Approves $733B Defense Spending Bill for Fiscal 2020

The House voted 220-197 Friday to pass a $733B defense policy bill for fiscal year 2020 amid a veto threat from President Donald Trump, Reuters reported Saturday.

The lower chamber’s 2020 National Defense Authorization Act is $17B less than the president’s budget request and does not include funds for the proposed border wall.

The NDAA includes an amendment that would preclude Trump from launching attacks against Iran without first securing congressional approval and a provision that would bar the U.S. military from fielding low-yield nuclear weapons.

The report said lawmakers are expected to meet in the coming months to reconcile the House NDAA with the Senate’s version of the bill, which would allocate $750B in fiscal 2020 funds for the Department of Defense.
