Smith Amendments No. 675 to the NDAA
On Agreeing to the Amendment
House Roll Call No. 233
113rd Congress, 2nd Session

Failed: 177-247 (see complete tally)

On May 22, 2014, the House rejected Amendment 676 to H.R. 4435, the National Defense Authorization Act, by a vote of 177-247. The ACLU urged the House to support the amendment, introduced by Congressman Adam Smith (D-WA). The amendment would have removed restrictions for detainee transfers to the United States for trial and detention, allowing for detainees to be tried in federal courts, and cut off all funding for the prison facility at Guantanamo Bay at the end of 2016. While supporting the amendment, the ACLU urged members to adopt changes before final passage of the bill that would bar transfers to the United States for continued detention of detainees never charged with a crime (Roll Call No. 233).
