FY2018 National Defense Authorization Act: Selected Military Personnel Issues [August 22, 2017] [open pdf - 687KB]
"Each year, the House and Senate armed services committees take up national defense authorization bills. The House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018 (H.R. 2810) on July 14, 2017. The Senate Armed Services Committee reported its version of the NDAA (S. 1519) on July 10, 2017. These bills contain numerous provisions that affect military personnel, retirees, and their family members. Provisions in one version are sometimes not included in the other, are treated differently, or are identical in both versions. Following passage of each chamber's bill, a conference committee typically convenes to resolve the differences between the respective chambers' versions of the bill. This report is intended to highlight selected personnel-related issues that may generate high levels of congressional and constituent interest. CRS will update this report to reflect enacted legislation."
