Following are selected highlights of the conference agreement on the FY2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The conference report (H.Rept. 114-840), filed in the House on November 30, 2016, resulted from negotiations between the House and Senate on House-passed H.R. 4909 and Senate-passed S. 2943.
