The House and Senate Armed Services Committees are preparing to complete action on the FY2011 Defense Authorization Bill this month prior to the Memorial Day recess. The House Armed Services Committee (HASC) has scheduled its subcommittee markups for Thursday and Friday of next week. The full HASC will take up the bill the following week, with May 19th as its target date to begin. The Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) will probably begin its subcommittee markups on May 25th with full committee action to begin on May 26th. Highlights will report on the major issues of these markups as they occur, and include links for press releases, bills and reports as they become available.
