WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representatives Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and Mike Rogers (R-Ala.), Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, today introduced H.R. 4350, the “by request” version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2022. This procedural measure is traditionally the first step in the legislative process for the NDAA. 
The legislation filed this week does not reflect substantive work by the Armed Services Committee. Rather, provisions contained in the bill reflect legislative proposals submitted by the Department of Defense. When the Committee meets to consider the FY22 NDAA, the content of H.R. 4350 will be struck and replaced with subcommittee and full committee proposals.
