HR 6395: OVERRIDING TRUMP VET O OF MILITARY BUDGET Voting 322 for and 87 against,


the House on Monday surpassed the two-thirds majority required to override President Trump’s veto of a bill authorizin­g $740.5 billion for the U.S. military in fiscal 2021. In his veto message, Trump disputed the bill’s removal of the names of Confederat­e generals from American military bases, calling that a move to “wash away history.” He also faulted the bill for ignoring his call for an end to liability protection­s for tech companies under Section 230 of the Communicat­ions Decency Act, among other objections. A yes vote was to override the veto and put the bill into law.

Yes: Fitzpatric­k, Dean, Wild, Cartwright, Meuser
