House overrides veto of defense spending bill

The 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) vetoed by President Trump has secured an override vote in the House of Representatives, with a vote of 332 yea and 87 nay.

The 2021 NDAA now goes before the Senate for an override vote tomorrow.

"With an overwhelming show of bi-partisan support in the House, it appears an override vote is likely to follow through in the Senate,  and as such we are cautiously optimistic that the 2021 NDAA will be enacted into law securing over $600 million in additional defense spending on Guam and H-2B access for Guam civilian construction projects," states Congressman San Nicolas.
