Bill Greenwalt, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security, discusses how the defense appropriations process will play out, and the potential for a year without an NDAA

Congress has until November 22 to put together appropriations bills for FY20. One bill that still needs to pass is the complete National Defense Authorization Act. Bill Greenwalt, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security, says that there’s a decent possibility of a year without an NDAA.

“There will be a need for some type of stripped-down bill to deal with pay authorities and the things that are necessary to be authorized for next year. But at the same time, if there’s not a bill, we could carry through for a year without those authorizations and it could go to next year and try to backfill them,” Greenwalt said.
