Description

Prepared for the use of the Committee on Armed Services of the House of Representatives, this committee print consists of the enrolled text and explanatory material for the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014 (H.R. 3304; Public Law 113-66).

This Act and the material found in this committee print are the product of an agreement between the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Committee on Armed Services and the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Armed Services on the reconciliation of H.R. 1960, as passed by the House of Representatives on June 14, 2013, and S. 1197, as reported out of committee on June 20, 2013.

BACKGROUND: The Senate began consideration of S. 1197 on November 18, 2013, but did not complete consideration of S. 1197 and therefore was unable to initiate a formal conference with the House.

In order to ensure the enactment of an annual defense bill by the end of the calendar year, the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Committee on Armed Services and the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Armed Services agreed to reconcile the provisions of H.R. 1960 and S. 1197, including a number of amendments submitted during the Senate's consideration of its bill which were cleared by both sides, but were not adopted by the Senate due to insufficient time.

The negotiated agreement was brought to the House Floor in the form of an amendment to the Senate amendments to H.R. 3304, a Medal of Honor bill referred to the Committee on Armed Services, which had previously passed in the House and was then amended and passed by the Senate.

On December 12, 2013, pursuant to H. Res. 441, which provided for the concurrence by the House in the Senate amendments to H.R. 3304, with an amendment, the House considered and passed the negotiated agreement by a vote of 350-69. On December 19, 2013, the Senate agreed to the House amendment to the Senate amendment, and passed the negotiated text, by recorded vote, 84-15.

The President signed the legislation on December 26, 2013, and it became Public Law 113-66.

"Joint Explanatory Statement": Because the House and Senate negotiators were unable to convene a formal conference committee to reconcile the differences in the respective versions of the bill, there is no conference report and no formal "joint explanatory statement of the conference committee'' for H.R. 3304. Instead, Chairman Howard P. "Buck'' McKeon submitted a "Joint Explanatory Statement to Accompany the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014'' in the Congressional Record on December 12, 2013 (pages H7894-H8037). The text of the joint explanatory statement is included in this committee print.

Section 4 of H.R. 3304 specifies that this explanatory material shall have the same effect with respect to the implementation of this legislation as if it were a joint explanatory statement of a committee of conference.
   
TERMINOLOGY: In this committee print, the provisions of H.R. 1960, the House-passed version of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014, are generally referred to as "the House bill.'' The provisions of S. 1197, the Senate Committee on Armed Services committee-reported version of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014, and selected manager's package amendments, are generally referred to as "the Senate committee-reported bill.'' The final form of the agreements reached during negotiations between the House and the Senate are referred to as "the agreement.'' This committee print is organized in the manner of a traditional conference report.
