The House Armed Services Committee has postponed marking up the annual defense policy bill in order to follow the guidelines meant to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
The committee had been scheduled to mark up the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) on April 30, but the markup will now be pushed to yet-to-be determined later date.
“The House Armed Services Committee has been, and will continue to be, in strict compliance with the guidance we have received from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Sergeant at Arms and the House Attending Physician,” Chairman Adam SmithDavid (Adam) Adam SmithOvernight Energy: Military sees surge in sites contaminated by 'forever chemicals' | USDA closes office wing due to coronavirus | Watchdog raises concerns over Trump energy regulator Military sees surge in sites with 'forever chemical' contamination Stock market plunge should incentivize firms to develop a coronavirus cure MORE (D-Wash.) said in a statement Monday.
“Given the new 30-day extension of the administration’s guidance, the committee has postponed the previously scheduled mark up of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021. A new markup date will be announced at a later time,” he added.
