The House voted Tuesday to approve a $778 billion defense-policy and budget bill, authorizing $25 billion more in defense spending than requested by Biden. 

The bill also contains a provision to create a commission on the War in Afghanistan, as well as pay raises for troops and money for military construction, ships and aircraft. 

The National Defense Authorization Act passed 363 to 70, backed by a majority of both Democrats and Republicans. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he expects the Senate to pass it without amendments. 

The legislation would establish a 16-member bipartisan commission to study U.S. involvement in Afghanistan from 2001 to 2021. Commissioners would report to Congress on their progress each year, and submit a report containing detailed findings, recommendations and lessons learned, the Wall Street Journal reports
