Washington – The U.S. House on Tuesday approved a massive defense bill that would send billions of dollars to Connecticut defense contractors and also make significant changes to Pentagon policy, including a requirement the military remove Confederate names from military bases.
Approved on a bipartisan, 295-125 vote, the $740 billion National Defense Authorization bill would authorize $4 billion to continue construction on the new Columbia-class submarine, the largest and most expensive submarine Electric Boat has ever built.
