House to Skip NDAA Subcommittee Hearings; Full Committee May Meet Next Week

May 14, 2024

The House Armed Services Committee will not hold separate subcommittee hearings pertaining to individual portions of the fiscal year 2025 National Defense Authorization Act, Military Times reported. It will roll that work into the full committee’s marathon markup, which is expected to happen next week, though no hearing had been announced by Monday evening.

“In recent years, individual subcommittee markups have rarely lasted more than a few minutes but have provided a chance for members of the public to hear numerous details of personnel, procurement and policy priorities to be included in the sweeping authorization bill ahead of the voluminous hours-long markup,” Leo Shane III wrote for Military Times.

The Senate Armed Services Committee typically does not hold individual subcommittee hearings before marking up the NDAA. It has not yet announced a markup date for its version of the NDAA.
