Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

There's some familiar language lurking in this year's National Defense Authorization Act. Once again the House Armed Services Subcommittee seems poised to explicitly bar DoD from even considering another BRAC round. But Congress' attitude seems to have softened from "never," to "maybe later." Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu writes about it this week's edition of "Inside the DoD Reporter's Notebook."

Inside the DoD Reporter's Notebook: House works on NDAA bill; Carter asked to probe alleged retaliation

In this week's Inside the Reporter's Notebook, language explicitly barring another BRAC round appeared last week in the House readiness subcommittee's contribution to the annual Defense authorization bill. The full House Armed Services Committee will begin to mark up the bill this week. The legislation would order DoD to draw up a 20-year plan that compares the force structure it expects to have with the precise categories of infrastructure it will need, indicating that lawmakers might be willing to consider some infrastructure consolidations once the department identifies where the excesses are in more granular detail.

Obama signs NDAA deal with pay raise, higher co-pays for troops

President Barack Obama signed the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act deal Friday. The House and Senate Armed Services Committees arrived at a compromise over troop benefits in the fiscal year 2015 National Defense Authorization Act that will give soldiers a 1 percent pay raise, as well as a $3 increase in most prescription co-pays.

Larry Korb, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress

Congress is capping the pensions of top military officials in 2015. As part of National Defense Authorization Act, pensions for generals and admirals will be trimmed to ensure they make no more in retirement than they did on active duty. That reverses a 2007 law designed to help retain officers during wartime. What effects, if any, will this have on the military's ability to retain its senior officers? Larry Korb is a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and former assistant secretary of Defense for manpower and reserve affairs. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with a look at this measure.

Trey Hodgkins, Information Technology Alliance for Public Sector

The Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act is still attached to the 2015 Defense authorization bill the House passed and the Senate will debate this week. The latest version of FITARA looks a bit different than the original. Still, the new bill would hand civilian agency CIOs more authority, prioritize hiring of specialty IT experts and maximize use of data centers. Trey Hodgkins is Senior Vice President of Public Sector at the Information Technology Alliance for Public Sector, a division of the Information Technology Industry Council. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss what we can expect from the compromise version of FITARA.

Todd Harrison, Senior Fellow, Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments

The big national defense authorization bill is moving through Congress. It passed the House yesterday, and the Senate is expected to take it up next week. In purely military spending terms, the bill is a mixed bag. Some programs and platforms get plus-ups, others get cuts. Todd Harrison is a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. He's been studying the bill, and joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to analyze the bill's winners and losers.
