House, Senate finalize annual defense policy bill
from The Hill
The final version of an annual defense policy bill jettisons a number of controversial provisions and would authorize $3.2 billion more than President Barack Obama requested. The troop pay raise would be 2.1 percent, above the president's request for 1.6 percent pay raise. End strength would also be increased across the services. Gone is a provision that would have required women to register for the draft.
