Senate approves FY 20 NDAA

Today, the Senate passed the passed the conference report for S.1790, the $738 billion FY20 National Defense Authorization Act by a vote of 86-8.

The legislation cleared the House last week. The bill was caught for months in negotiations between House and Senate lawmakers, raising the prospect that Congress might not be able to pass the defense legislation for the first time in nearly 60 years. The major sticking point was provisions related to the President’s border wall. Ultimately, negotiators decided to leave out wall-related provisions, punting the issue to the appropriations process.
