FY2020 Defense Appropriations: Selected Issues Raised by H.R. 2740 (Div. C) and S. 2474 [October 23, 2019]   [open pdf - 464KB]

From the Document: "House and Senate negotiators trying to draft a compromise version of the FY2020 Defense Appropriations Act likely will have to deal with elements of the House-passed bill (H.R. 2740, Division C) that challenge some of the Trump Administration's signature policies. Among these are provisions to block construction of a barrier along the U.S. border with Mexico and provisions that would slow or block some parts of the planned modernization of the U.S. strategic arsenal. Those are among several aspects of the House bill cited by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as potential grounds for a veto in a Statement of Administration Policy issued on June 11, 2019."
