From the report: “The Department of Defense (DOD) operates the largest employer-sponsored child care program in the United States, serving approximately 200,000 children of servicemembers and DOD civilians. It employs about 20,000 child care workers, at an annual cost of over $1 billion. Several child care-related provisions were considered in the House-passed (H.R. 7900) and Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC)- reported (S. 4543) versions of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 (FY2023 NDAA). The enacted legislation (P.L. 117-263; the James M. Inhofe National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023) amends military-sponsored child care authorities and includes oversight actions (e.g., required reports and briefings).”
