The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) establishes our defense policy for the year, including authorizing spending, and is the primary instrument used by Congress to conduct oversight over the Pentagon.
Unfortunately, the legislation Congress will likely send to the President’s desk includes budget gimmicks to inflate Pentagon spending beyond the legal caps. It also contains several provisions that actually weaken oversight of the Pentagon’s $612 billion budget, including failing to modernize our antiquated system of protections for military whistleblowers. Ultimately, the legislation falls short of the responsible fiscal constraint taxpayers need.
