On May 28, 2010, the House approved the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2011 (H.R. 5136.) The bill authorizes a $726 billion military budget that will, according to House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton, “strengthen our national security, provide our men and women in uniform with the tools they need to do their jobs, and take care of our service members and their families.”
Included in the bill is an amendment (H.AMDT.656) that would allow the spouse, children and parents of a deployed member of the Armed Forces to take at least two weeks of unpaid leave from their job, even if they’re not covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
