Senate Adopts HR 1735 Conference Report

Yesterday as expected the Senate the Senate accepted the Conference Report on HR 1735, the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, by a vote of 70-23. The bill now goes to the President for signature. While a veto had been threatened, the vote to pass in both houses of Congress was certainly large enough to overturn a veto. It will be interesting to see if Obama makes a principled stand on this budgeting issue or if he just acquiesces and makes that fight another day.
