Defense policy bill would bring the biggest organizational changes in 30 years | Washington Examiner

The fiscal 2017 defense policy bill includes several provisions that will change the organizational structure of the military and get at some of the Goldwater-Nichols reform that leaders on Capitol Hill have been pushing all year.

The changes included in the compromise bill, which will be considered in the House on Friday, range from a restructuring of the Pentagon’s acquisition department to reducing how long a member of the military must serve in a joint billet to advance.
