Posted December 2, 2014 at 9:10am

Defense News asks: “Will Congress start work this week on two bills for which the Pentagon and US defense sector are clamoring? It’s anyone’s guess.”  

“The 113th Congress is expected to adjourn by the end of next week. In the remaining 10 or so legislative days, lawmakers are set to battle over corporate tax breaks and immigration while also flirting with a government shutdown.”  

“Caught in the partisan and intraparty squabbling are the 2015 defense authorization and appropriations bills.”  

“Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., on Monday listed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) among his must-pass bills.”
