FY2007 National Defense Authorization Act: Selected Military Personnel Policy Issues [Updated September 8, 2006] [open pdf - 123KB]
"Military personnel issues typically generate significant interest from many Members of Congress and their staffs. Ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan in support of the Global War on Terror, along with the emerging operational role of the Reserve Components, has further heightened interest and support for a wide range of military personnel policies and issues. CRS has selected a number of issues being considered by Congress as the FY2007 National Defense Authorization Act evolves. In each case, a brief synopsis is provided that includes background information, a comparison of the House and Senate provisions, if any, and a brief discussion of the issue. Where appropriate, other CRS products are identified to provide more detailed background information and analysis of the issue. For each issue, a CRS analyst is identified and contact information is provided. This report focuses exclusively on the annual authorization process. It does not include appropriations, veterans' affairs, tax implications of policy choices or any discussion of separately introduced legislation. After any revisions to H.R. 5122/S. 2766 by a conference, this report will be updated. It is anticipated that this will become an annual CRS report."
