H.Amdt.227 to H.R.1735. Rep. Earl Blumenauer’s (D-OR) amendment would have required funding for the new Ohio-class nuclear submarines to come from the Navy’s regular budget as opposed to a Navy slush fund called the National Sea-Based Deterrent Fund. The amendment also would have transferred money from the National Sea-Based Deterrent Fund back into the regular Navy budget. Like the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) budget, the Sea-Based Deterrence Fund allows the Navy to circumvent legislated budget caps and reduces transparency. Failed, 43-375.
