Biden OKs $770B National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2022

President Joe Biden on Monday signed into law a $770 billion defense policy bill for fiscal year 2022, which reflects a 5 percent increase from the previous fiscal year’s defense policy measure and includes a 2.7 percent pay raise for service members and more naval ship and aircraft purchases, Reuters reported.

The FY 2022 National Defense Authorization Act authorizes the formation of a 16-member commission to look into the Afghanistan war and includes $4 billion for the European Defense Initiative, $300 million for the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative and $150 million for Baltic security cooperation.

The NDAA also includes $7.1 billion for the Pacific Deterrence Initiative; a provision that would prohibit the Department of Defense from buying products produced through forced labor from the Chinese region of Xinjiang; and a statement of congressional support for Taiwan.

In mid-December, the Senate passed the NDAA a week after the House approved the measure.
