House passes defense bill 363-70; Senate up next (Joe Gould, Defense News)

The House passed a new compromise defense policy bill and sent it to the Senate Tuesday in a step toward extending the bill’s 60-year streak.

The House voted 363-70 to approve the National Defense Authorization Act, which was finalized earlier in the day by negotiators with the House and Senate Armed Services committees. The “no” votes came from 19 Republicans and 51 Democrats.
