2018 NDAA Passed by Senate

By a wide margin, 89-8, the U.S. Senate passed its version of the fiscal year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) yesterday. The House passed its version back in July. Now conferees from the House and Senate will meet to reconcile the differences in the competing versions.

Although the total authorizations are not significantly different, $700 billion for the Senate bill and $696.5 billion for the House bill, there are substantial differences in what gets funded and other provisions.

According to reports, there is no threat of a Presidential veto to either the House or Senate version so we will expect to see a final bill on the President's desk in short order.

You can read about some of the provisions included in the Senate version in the following posts:
