House adjourns, to face more DOD amendment votes Friday

The House adjourned at about 9 p.m. Thursday, after approving a few amendments to the Department of Defense Appropriations Act and holding some for roll-call votes on Friday.

Among other things, members voted to deny funding to African countries that support military training involving child soldiers, to prohibit funding for ground troops in Libya and to block funding for a new flight suit design. Those with more energy can review all the amendment votes so far here, but many of the major anticipated amendments on Libya, Afghanistan and Pakistan were debated and voted on earlier.

The House returns at 9 a.m. Friday for legislative work. A final vote on the DOD spending bill is expected before the House adjourns Friday.
