The U.S. Senate gave final congressional approval late Thursday night to fund the defense department, sending it to President Obama.
The Senate voted 84-15 in favor of a more than $633 billion defense bill that covers everything military, from new combat ships and aircraft, to base operations and troops. It includes a 1 percent pay raise for military personnel.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, voted against the bill.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, voted for the bill. He made special note of provisions in the bill aimed at closing the prison at the U.S. base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
