Biden Signs FY22 NDAA

Yesterday, President Biden signed the nearly $770 billion FY22 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law.

Lawmakers increased spending in almost every part of the military, including new funding to counter China’s military expansion, initiatives to bolster the defense of Ukraine, and billions in cash for the procurement of advanced aircraft, ships, and high-tech hardware. The Act also contains a 2.7% pay increase for most service members.

The bill faced many hurdles in the Senate, primarily focused on various foreign policy provisions. The House ended up crafting a compromise bill that quickly passed both chambers.

Despite signing the bill into law, the President noted his various concerns with provisions of the NDAA in a statement here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2021/12/27/statement-by-the-president-on-s-1605-the-national-defense-authorization-act-for-fiscal-year-2022/
