After the House Armed Services Committee marked up their version of a defense acquisition reform bill yesterday, the legislation is expected to hit the House floor next week, a committee staffer tells us, adding the detailed timing is yet to be finalized.

We've got the chairman's mark and all amendments here.

Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI), who is sponsoring a similarly themed bill in the Senate, signaled his willingness yesterday to begin a conference on the two pieces of legislation before Memorial Day. The full Senate passed the Levin bill yesterday.
