The House on Monday secured enough votes to reject President Trump’s veto of a $740-billion defense funding bill, marking the first successful override vote of Trump’s presidency. The bill provides funding for military programs and construction projects, and authorizes a three percent pay raise for troops.

Trump rejected the bill’s passing because of its failure to repeal Section 230, a federal law that provides a legal shield for internet companies. The bill will now move to the Republican-controlled Senate, where the stimulus bill currently sits awaiting approval.
