The House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress, following the Senate, approved the draft budget for 2023 fiscal year in the amount of $1.7 trillion, according to the voting results.

The bill will now be sent to U.S. President Joe Biden for signature.

CNN clarifies that approximately $40 billion of the budget is provided to respond to natural disasters such as hurricanes, wildfires and floods.

The bill also included a provision to ban the TikTok app on government devices.

The bill includes defense spending of $858 billion, as well as defense-related spending of $773 billion. The defense budget envisioned by lawmakers is 10% more than this year and $45 billion more than the amount Biden requested. The non-defense part of the budget is 6% above FY2022 levels.
