The House passed the fiscal year 2013 Department of Defense appropriations bill (H.R. 5956) by a 326-90 vote on July 19. The bill offers $518.1 billion in non-war defense spending; $12 billion less than the amount originally approved last year, but the same amount stipulated in the FY 2012 omnibus spending bill signed by President Obama last December. In the unlikely event that the bill passes the Senate in its current form, President Obama is likely to veto it because it surpasses the base budget amount established in the Budget Control Act by about $2 billion.
