2017 NDAA: The Big Picture
The U.S. faces a range of growing threats to its vital interests, but its military is getting smaller and weaker. The House of Representatives and the Senate have passed their versions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year (FY) 2017 and are now negotiating the final bill. Both bills are massive in size and scope, containing a wide range of important and not-so-important provisions. The NDAA is an opportunity to begin rebuilding the U.S. military and Congress needs to take advantage of it.
