The House has passed the National Defense Authorization Act, the major funding measure for the United States military for fiscal year 2014.

The vote was 350 – 69. It now goes to the Senate, although the upper chamber is currently tangled in debate over executive nominations.

The act is the product of two bills – one from the House and one from the Senate – which were merged in a bipartisan deal after the Senate’s version stalled due to disagreement about the amendment process.

The leaders of the House and Senate Armed Services committee announced a deal on the merged legislation on Monday.
