House Funding Bill Blocks Amphib, LCS Decommissioning, Bans Funds to Support Abortion Travel

Recommended Posts

A House defense funding bill stops the Navy from decommissioning Littoral Combat Ships and two amphibious warships, and places restrictions on service member travel for reproductive care, according to the text of the bill released on Wednesday.

The bill from the House Appropriations defense subcommittee outlines $826.45 billion for the Department of Defense in Fiscal Year 2024, in line with a budget deal reached earlier this month between the Biden administration and House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to prevent the U.S. default on its national debt.

The negotiated deal called for the defense committees to craft budgets inline with the presidential budget submission from earlier this year. In the last two budget cycles, there was a bipartisan push to plus up the defense budget from the initial presidential submission.
