WH threatens veto over Gitmo restrictions, environmental concerns

Monday the Obama Administration threatened to veto several major bills, including the House GOP’s annual must-pass Defense authorization bill, as well as spending bills for military construction and the departments of Transportation and Housing and Urban Development.

The White House’s Office of Management and Budget threatened to veto the House version of the annual defense authorization bill, arguing that it gambles with funding for the troops by shifting billions from war spending to pay for military readiness.

In the past month, the House and Senate both passed versions of the National Defense Authorization Act providing $610 billion in overall spending for fiscal year 2017.

The House version, however, shifts $18 billion from the Overseas Contingency Operations, or OCO, fund to pay for “military readiness,” or increased troops, as well as aircraft and shipbuilding.
