Congressional Committees Making Progress

As indicated in previous updates, Congressional committees continue their preparations for defense bill markups. Some scheduled updates across the four committees:

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith
    • Next week the subcommittees of the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) will mark their respective sections of the FY21 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  SASC’s full committee markup should follow by the end of June.


    • The House Armed Services Committee (HASC) SeaPower Subcommittee conducted a hearing on Navy Force Structure this week. During that hearing, HASC Chairman Smith confirmed his intent for HASC to conduct its markup of the NDAA at the subcommittee level in late June, and the full committee level after the July 4th recess period. Chairman Smith expects the House NDAA to go to the House floor by the end of July.


    • House Appropriations Chairwoman, Nita Lowey, has asked “Appropriations Colleagues” via letter to block their calendars for the weeks of July 6th and July 13th in order to conduct markups. Chairwoman Lowey indicates appropriations bills will go to the House floor by the end of July.

    • Senate Appropriations schedules remain unclear. Traditionally, a decision to either move bills in blocks or concede a short-term continuing resolution past the November election, would be made right after Labor Day.
