House Roll Call No. 216
114th Congress, 2nd Session

Passed: 277-147 (see complete tally)

On May 18, 2016, the House passed (277-147) H.R. 4909, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017. The ACLU opposed the bill because it would block the closing of the Guantanamo detention facility and the ending of indefinite detention; undermine civil rights protections by allowing religiously affiliated federal contractors and grantees (including large institutions like hospitals and universities) to discriminate in hiring with taxpayer dollars; and authorize the transfer of military drones to state and federal agencies. The bill also lacked a provision, stripped out by the House Rules Committee after adoption by the committee of jurisdiction, to require women to register under the Selective Service system.
