Guam - The Senate is currently on a two-week recess following initial deliberations of its version of the proposed National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014.

In a joint release, House Armed Services Committee ranking member congressman Adam Smith and chairman Congressman Howard 'Buck' McKeon push for swift action, saying, "Time is running short to reach an agreement this year, but it has not yet run out. Our colleagues in the senate should remember their obligation to our troops and continue to work towards final passage."

The Obama Administration along with leaders here at home objected to the Senate's version as a section in the bill would limit funding for the marines realignment from Okinawa to Guam. The Senate is set to return after Thanksgiving.
