Wow, you got me thinking hard, which isn't hard to so. I m certain the council will have it figured out (surely), but since it didn't pass, doesn't someone that voted against it have to make a motion to bring it back to a vote and have to vote YES automatically? Or where am I dreaming that up from?

McCaskill says Senate working on budget and NDAA

4 months, 1 week ago by Jim Dewey

The  U S Senate is working this week to finish up the National Defense Authorization Act, a bill that Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill says has been passed every year despite dysfunction in Congress. 

In her weekly conference call with reporters - Senator McCaskill said the act authorizes spending levels and policy changes at the Department of Defense. 

McCaskill said she is thrilled the bill will include historic reforms on sexual assault in the military. "We are going to be doing everything from getting victims their own lawyers to getting victims much more power and deference as to how the case proceeds to removing from commanders from their ability to fool around with the criminal adjudication, and all kinds of checks and balances of the command." 

McCaskill said this will make the U S military the most victim friendly criminal justice system in the world. 

The Senate will also voting on the compromise budget bill in the next few days. McCaskill said "whenever everyone is saying it's a bad deal, that probably means a compromise has occurred." She noted that both the far left and the far right are complaining about the bill, which she says probably means "It's about right."
