The Twelve Days of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Fact # 3

Fact #3 of 12 about the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA): The Bill now goes to a Conference Committee composed of members from each chamber appointed specifically to reconcile the separate versions of the Bills. While they have a broad latitude, they do get instructions to guide their negotiations and the resulting compromise version must be ratified by a simple majority of both Chambers before it can be sent to the President for his signature.
