New & Notable Legislation

The Senate passed the Pentagon budget, including war funding this week by a vote of 93-7. The $626 billion measure also bans the transfer of Guantanamo residents to prisons in the United States and includes $128 billion for Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom.

The House voted 281-146 Thursday to pass its $680 billion defense-spending bill, complete with the totally unrelated expansion of federal hate crimes to include those committed against people because of their sexual disorientation.
