WASHINGTON (CNN) – The House of Representatives passed a $96.7 billion Iraq and Afghanistan war funding bill Thursday.
The measure, which covers funding for the two conflicts for the remainder of 2009, passed in a 368-60 vote.
Fifty-one Democrats and nine Republicans opposed the measure.
House Democrats removed $80 billion requested by the Obama administration to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. They instead added a requirement that the administration submit a plan to Congress by October 1 on what to do with remaining Guantanamo Bay detainees.
The bill also includes a requirement that the administration give Congress a detailed progress report on the status of the Afghanistan conflict within a year.
The Senate is expected to vote on a similar war funding measure next week.
