Defense Appropriations and Authorization Bills

Hse. Def Subcomm Members – Hearings  |  Sen. Def Subcomm Members Hearings

Total Defense Appropriations consists of:
(1) Amounts appropriated under the statutory Defense/Security Cap of the Budget Control Act of 2011 (as modified by the Bipartisan Budget Acts of 2013, ’15, and ’18); and
(2) additional amounts (more than $60b) appropriated “outside” the caps for “Overseas Contingency Operations.” Although OCO funding is intended to be war-related (hence the exemption from the annual spending caps), the funding provided for OCO includes some amounts intended to be used for regular activities of the DoD according to a 2018 GAO report.

FY 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)
Defense is one of the few areas where the authorization bill — developed by the House Armed Services Committee and Senate Armed Services Committee — provides funding levels for programs and projects with specificity.  Appropriations.com therefore tracks the Defense Authorization Bill:
–NDAA House action:  5/15/18 reported: HR 5515  |  H.Rpt. 115-676  |  CBO Prelim Estimate
–NDAA Senate action:  Armed Services Comm. mark-up week of 5/21/18
–NDAA Conference:
–NDAA President:
Note: There are sometimes vigorous policy and funding disagreements between the defense authorizing and appropriations committees, which sometimes are settled only by which bill — the authorizing bill or the appropriations bill — is enacted later in time.
