The House Armed Services Committee has unveiled a policy bill authorizing $515 billion in U.S. Defense Department base budget and another $89.2 billion in overseas war funds for 2016 fiscal year, The Hill newspaper reported Monday.
Kristina Wong writes the House’s 2016 National Defense Authorization Act includes provisions to bar DoD from carrying out a new round of base realignment and closure and retiring the A-10 attack fleet.
The committee also proposed strategies to reform the military retirement and procurement system through the bill, according to the newspaper.
The NDAA also calls for the Government Accountability Office to review the technical and cost aspects of the Air Force’s LRS-B development program, the report said.
Bennett said the House Armed Services Committee is scheduled to hold a markup on the bill Wednesday.
