On a mostly party-line vote, the U.S. House narrowly passed a $886 billion defense spending bill on Friday.
Alaska’s Rep. Mary Peltola voted no on the final votes and the amendments preceding it, although she missed most of the amendments preceding the final vote. The measure passed 219-210.
Democrats opposed the National Defense Authorization Act because the Republican majority had inserted amendments that cut funding for unneeded transgender surgery for troops and removed funding from the Pentagon’s abortion travel policy, which pays for women in the military to travel to another state for an abortion if they are stationed in a state that has abortion limits.
Peltola was in the Capitol on Wednesday and played at the congressional women’s softball game against journalists that evening. She also voted no on the moving of the National Defense Authorization Act on Thursday, before disappearing for final votes on amendments and then voting against the final passage Friday morning.
This story has been updated to reflect her final vote.
