President Barack Obama signed a long-awaited budget agreement and a major defense spending bill into law while vacationing in Hawaii. There's more work to be done, though, on fiscal matters: the budget legislation only sets the levels at which spending will sit. Obama also signed into law the defense authorization legislation for next year, a major spending bill that sets military spending and policy for the next year.
