The U.S. Senate has approved a massive $626 billion defense spending bill to pay for military operations for the fiscal year.
The measure passed by a vote of 93 to 7.
Nearly $130 billion of the spending will be assigned to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The measure will bring the total tab for the U.S- led wars to more than $1trillion.
One key provision of the bill -- it does not allocate funds for the transfer of terror suspects currently held at Guantananamo Bay military prison in Cuba to the United States.
The bill is nearly $4 billion less than what President Obama had requested.
