Subject: [CPEO-MEF] "Defense Streamlining Initiative"
Usually reliable sources say that the White House is expected to submit
additional legislative language to the Senate this week for inclusion in
the Defense Authorization Act, which has already been reported out by
the Senate Armed Services Committee. I find this hard to believe, but
these sources say that one section, the "Defense Streamlining
Initiative," is designed to rush Defense Department proposals through
both houses of Congress, WITHOUT:

1) Inter-agency review within the Defense Department

2) Participation of committees, other than Armed Services, with

3) The opportunity to amend the legislation

These proposals could cover a range of issues, including environmental regulation.

Keep tuned!
