House Passes HR 7776 – 2023 NDAA

This afternoon the House took up H Res 1512 (Rules Committee Print) and passed it by a strongly bipartisan vote of 350 to 80; even the Nays were bipartisan (45 Democrats and 35 Republicans). The resolution passed under the House suspension of the rules process, requiring a 2/3 vote for passage). As a result of the passage of that Resolution, the House is deemed to have concurred with the Senate Amendment to HR 7776 with an amendment in the form of substitute language. That substitute would make HR 7776 the “James M. Inhofe National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023”.

HR 7776 now goes to the Senate for consideration. Based upon the results in the House there should be enough Democrats and Republicans voting yest to overcome the 60-vote requirement to close debate on the bill. There could, however, be enough opposition to string out the consideration process through next week.
