HR 4350 Considered in House – 9-23-21

This evening the House completed consideration of HR 4350, the FY 2022 National Defense Authorization Act. The final vote on passage was a bipartisan vote of 316 to 113. The Democrats split 181 for and 38 against; the Republicans 135 to 75. All three En Bloc votes that I described earlier today (subscription required) were completed this evening and all three passed with bipartisan support.

The table below shows the votes (data sources En Bloc #2, En Bloc #3, and En Bloc #4) on the En Bloc amendments.




En Bloc #2



En Bloc #3



En Bloc #4



This means that all of the cybersecurity amendments that I described on Tuesday have been adopted in the House passed version of HR 4350.

The bill will now go to the Senate. While the bipartisan vote on the bill tonight would bode well for the bill to be able to make it through a cloture vote, the Senate is unlikely to take up the House language on the bill. In stead they will substitute the language from S 2792 (which I should be able to look at this weekend) from the Senate Armed Services Committee. Later this year the inevitable conference committee will work out the differences between the two bills.
