U.S. Senate Passes Sweeping Defense Bill

Washington, December 21 (RHC)-- The U.S. Senate has passed a sweeping Pentagon bill that keeps military sexual assault cases within the chain of command while adding some new protections for survivors. It also raises military pay by one percent and bars the transfer of Guantánamo prisoners to the United States.

Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid said that the Senate will take up the issue of unemployment benefits in early January when it returns from break; jobless payments will expire for 1.3 million people three days after Christmas.
