National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011

June 4, 2010
December 9, 2010
Filibustered in Senate

No cosponsors

In its report on the bill the Senate Committee on Armed Services recommended an increase of $25 m. over President Obama’s funding request to continue development of the David’s Sling short-range ballistic missile defense system for Israel. The committee cited the need to accelerate development of David’s Sling in the face of the increased threat from short-range missiles fired by Hizballah.

Would require the secy. of defense to submit a report to Congress detailing any assistance provided by Venezuela to any terrorist organization. The report would focus on four ‘Terrorist Organizations of Particular Interest’: Hamas, Hizballah, the National Liberation Army (ELN), and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia (FARC).
