The Senate passed the measure through a unanimous consent agreement and it now heads to the House for further action.

The Senate passed H.R. 4751, which renames the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Memorial as the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial. The House passed the bill earlier this month, meaning it now heads to President Obama’s desk for his signature before becoming law. 

H.R. 4809 was also passed through a unanimous consent agreement. It reauthorizes provisions of the Defense Production Act of 1950 through fiscal year 2019 so that the president can prepare for national defense, military conflicts, disasters, or acts of terrorism. The House passed the bill in July so it now heads to Obama’s desk.
