Obama plans to sign the bill.

The U.S. Congress supported the bill for the abolition of restrictions for future Pentagon chief James Mattis, according to which before the appointment, you cannot take the military position for seven years.

Voted 284 Congressman, voted against 151, – reports Reuters.

The White house said that Barack Obama will sign the bill.

Mattis in 2013 resigned from his post as commander of U.S. Central command. Thus, until the time of his nomination to the post of Minister of defence it’s only been a little over three years.

A precedent when the U.S. Senate did its exclusion has already taken place in American history. It happened in 1950, when the Pentagon was appointed General George Marshall.
