Roger Zakheim, director of the Reagan Institute and former deputy staff director of HASC, discusses the Senate’s defense authorization priorities and how the discussion may play out on the floor.


The House Armed Services Committee voted on their version of the National Defense Authorization Act last week, and now it’s the Senate’s turn. Roger Zakheim, director of the Reagan Institute and former deputy staff director of HASC, says that in debate, the Senate will be focusing on the topline budget increase.   “The topline reflects the budget deal that was hashed out earlier in the year. This is the second piece of it,” said Zakheim. “The Defense Authorization Bill, what’s going through the House and the Senate shortly is no longer a debate of how much money, but what we do with the money. That I think is the right debate for right now and one I think will be pretty spirited.”
