In a markup session today, the Personnel Subcommittee of the Senate Armed Services Committee approved Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's military justice reform bill for inclusion in the FY22 NDAA. Now the issue will be before the full committee. Details here. Excerpt from the news account:

“While I have disagreed strongly and publicly with the chairman on the substance and the merits of this bill, I do recognize that he is the first chairman of this committee to support at least moving sexual assault and related crimes from the chain of command,” Gillibrand said July 20. “That is an important piece of the puzzle, but we must resist the urge to isolate sex crimes and create a separate but unequal system of justice within the military for survivors.”
