Title National Defense Authorization Act: Selected Military Personnel Policy Issues, FY 2013
Publication Date Jan 2013
Media Count 52p
Personal Author C. A. Theohary D. F. Burrelli D. J. Jansen L. Kapp
Abstract Military personnel issues typically generate significant interest from many Members of Congress and their staffs. Recent military operations in Iraq and ongoing operations in Afghanistan, along with the operational role of the Reserve Components, further heighten interest in a wide range of military personnel policies and issues. The Congressional Research Service (CRS) has selected a number of the military personnel issues considered in deliberations on the House and Senate versions of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY2013. This report provides a brief synopsis of sections that pertain to personnel policy. These include end strengths, pay raises, health care, sexual assault, issues related to the repeal of the Don t Ask, Don t Tell policy, as well as less prominent issues that nonetheless generate significant public interest. This report focuses exclusively on the annual defense authorization process. It does not include language concerning appropriations, veterans affairs, tax implications of policy choices, or any discussion of separately introduced legislation. Some issues were addressed in the FY 2012 National Defense Authorization Act and discussed in CRS Report R41874, FY 2012 National Defense Authorization Act: Selected Military Personnel Policy Issues, coordinated by David F. Burrelli. Those issues that were considered previously are designated with asterick in the relevant section titles of this report.
