Subject: [CPEO-MEF] CLIMATE, PFCs: National Defense Authorization Act
Military bill could be key for climate policy

The annual defense bill will take center stage in the Senate this week, with several energy and environmental issues in tow, including the nation's response to global warming.

The chamber will take a procedural vote on the National Defense Authorization Act tonight, and lawmakers expect to tackle roughly 30 amendments in the coming days.

Armed Services Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) told reporters Thursday that debate could bleed over into next week, though Senate leadership has said it aims to move the bill quickly and push on to other priorities.

For environmentalists in the defense community, this year's NDAA is key. Many are hoping to see Congress formally endorse the Department of Defense's efforts to mitigate climate change for the first time.
