U.S. Senators Jack Reed (D-RI) and Jim Inhofe (R-OK), the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today announced the full committee and subcommittee markup schedule for the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2023.
Senator Reed commented: “America’s national security challenges are complex and urgent, and meeting them will require thoughtful defense strategies. This year’s National Defense Authorization Act will be critical to this effort, and the markup is an important part of a multi-step process. Along with Ranking Member Inhofe and our colleagues on the committee, I am committed to upholding our tradition of robust deliberation and bipartisan collaboration to ensure we provide our military men and women with the resources, training, equipment, and capabilities they need to achieve their missions and protect American families.”
Senator Inhofe also commented: “The National Defense Authorization Act is the most important bill Congress does every year, and the committee markup is the next step toward enacting it for the 62nd year in a row. I look forward to continuing this committee’s long tradition of bipartisanship and comity as we have a robust and productive debate at the markup, and I thank Chairman Reed for his leadership and his partnership on this year’s mark. While we don’t agree on every last provision, we are very aligned where it matters most: defending this country and taking care of our troops.”
There will be a Committee vote to close portions of the markup.
