House passes DOD appropriations billSubmitted by JacciC on Sat, 06/21/2014 - 11:34
Today, the House of Representatives voted 340-73 with 18 not voting, to pass the fiscal year 2015 Department of Defense Appropriations Act.
The bill provides for money to be appropriated to military personnel, operating and maintenance expenses, environmental restoration expenses, research and development, craft and ammunition among other items.
Although the appropriations bill has passed the House, it has not been voted on by the Senate yet. Until this bill has passed out of the Senate Committee and been passed on the Senate Floor, an accurate accounting cannot be taken.
