Posted October 28, 2015 at 6:17am

Military Times reports that “with a two-year budget deal in place, the heads of the House and Senate Armed Services committees see a relatively smooth path ahead for the recently-vetoed 2016 defense authorization bill.”  

“That means new life for a plan to radically overhaul military retirement, for proposed defense acquisition reforms, and for a host of other critical program renewals.”  

“Both Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, said they expect the bill to be reintroduced or resurrected in the next few days, after the broader budget agreement is finalized.”
