Books could (and probably will) be written about provisions in the FY2012 National Defense Authorization Act that didn’t survive the conference committee. But the same can be said about those provisions that did make the cut.
The new, new Article 120, which would give us Art. 120: Rape and sexual assault generally; Art. 120a: Stalking (pre-existing); Art. 120b: Rape and sexual assault of a child; and Art. 120c: Other sexual misconduct. I’ve cut the relevant section out of the conference report and provide it as a pdf here.
Finally, Article 47 (Refusal to appear or testify) would be expanded to included the case of a subpoena duces tecum for an Article 32 investigation.
Of course, this all assumes the conference report is adopted by both houses, and it survives the veto threat.
