House and Senate negotiators reached a deal to approve United States President Joe Biden's annual defense policy legislation, Politico reported Wednesday, citing four people familiar with the negotiations.

The agreement would set the National Defense Authorization Act budget cap for the fiscal year 2023 at $847 billion for national defense. According to sources, House and Senate Armed Services leaders have been seeking consensus for months to pass a compromise before the end of this year.

Spokespersons for the committees did not immediately answer requests for comment.
