Tina Jonas, senior adviser at the Center for Strategic & International Studies, details the pros and cons of a skinny NDAA, and the impact one would have on Pentagon programs.

With the lack of legislative momentum on the FY20 defense authorization bill, it’s looking more likely that a ‘skinny’ NDAA will be passed. Tina Jonas, senior adviser at the Center for Strategic & International Studies, says a skinny bill would not be good for national security.

 

“There are many things that must be funded. Pay needs to be funded, there are critical programs that need to be funded,” Jonas said. “There are some advantages to this movement, [but] if they have an opportunity or see an opportunity to push it off a bit and get a more complete package, I think that would be optimal for the department. There would be so many things left on the table if they went with the skinny bill.”
