ABSTRACT

Serial No. 115-676, Part 2: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 201;9 Supplemental Report to Accompany H.R. 5515   [open pdf - 282KB]

From the summary: "H.R. 5515 would authorize appropriations totaling an estimated $709 billion for the military functions of the Department of Defense (DoD), for certain activities of the Department of Energy (DOE), and for other purposes. In addition, the bill would prescribe personnel strengths for each active-duty and selected-reserve component of the U.S. Armed Forces. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that appropriation of the authorized and necessary amounts would result in outlays of $685 billion over the 2019-2023 period. The bill also contains provisions that would affect the costs of defense programs funded through discretionary appropriations in 2020 and future years. Those provisions mainly would affect force structure, compensation and benefits, and various procurement programs. CBO has analyzed the costs of a select number of those provisions and estimates that they would, on a net basis, increase the cost of those programs relative to current law by about $48 billion over the 2020-2023 period."
