Defense News reports that “US House members signaled Tuesday night that they are ready to move beyond America’s post-9/11 wars, and several more telling national security votes are coming Wednesday.”

“Republican and Democratic members supported several amendments — some overwhelmingly — to a Pentagon spending bill that would divert funds meant for various projects in Afghanistan.”

“The House approved several amendments that, if enacted in the final version of the defense spending bill, would shrink the “Afghanistan Infrastructure Fund” by hundreds of millions of dollars. Three of the approved Afghanistan amendments were offered by Republicans, and two by Democrats.”
