On Friday, the United States House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017, the annual defense policy bill that directs the United States’ defense programs for the fiscal year. This year’s bill includes a pay raise for service members, provides the Department of Defense (DOD) with the necessary tools to resolve the California National Guard bonus reimbursement issue, and authorizes funds for the US military to combat and defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
