The House has passed a bill that authorizes intelligence programs while boosting spending by 7 percent over last year.
The measure passed Tuesday, 247-178, largely along party lines. It now goes to the Senate.
The bill includes a ban on transferring Guantánamo Bay detainees to the U.S. or a foreign “combat zone.” That language has drawn a veto threat from the White House.
Most of the bill’s key provisions are classified.
Never miss a local story.
Some lawmakers object to a provision of the bill that would block a surveillance oversight board from obtaining information about covert action. But amendments to change that provision aimed at the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board were prevented from reaching the House floor.
