The Senate Armed Services Committee press release regarding the Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21) Pentagon authorization bill has been made public.
Today’s demand for instantaneous information about Congressional actions, combined with the SASC’s “Star Chamber” approach to consider this legislation behind closed doors, forces us to start our commentary on the legislation with just the information in the press release. We like to put on our green eyeshades, roll up our sleeves, and dive into the tables for all the best tidbits. But we’ll work with what we’ve got. And there are plenty of details in the press release for us to make some preliminary comments.
