The Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee Senator Jack Reed says his committee will push back the markup of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to July, which means a calendar year-end timeline for the legislation is likely.

  • Dov Zakheim, former Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) at the Department of Defense, said the delays in releasing the detailed defense budget caused Chairman Reed to push back NDAA markups and that “you can hear the frustration” in Congress.
  • Zakheim said a continuing resolution (legislation Congress can use to fund the government for a limited time) would completely interfere with Defense Department planning and programs.
  • Zakheim said the delay could impact development of documents like the National Defense Strategy; he gave the example that it would be hard to provide clarity when the role of the Army in Asia is being hotly debated.
