H.R. 3174, the Equal Justice for Our Military Act, would amend both 28 U.S.C. 1259 and Article 67a of the UCMJ. Apparently the former amendment is paramount, because the bill has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee rather than to HASC, of which the bill’s sponsor (Susan Davis) is a member and one of the bill’s co-sponsors (Ike Skelton) is the chairman. None of the four current co-sponsors is a House Judiciary Committee member.
We’ll continue to track the bill’s progress.
