S. 2801 is sponsored by Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Sen. Steve Daines of Montana. H.R. 5713 is sponsored by Rep. Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire and Rep. Trent Kelly of Mississippi.
Countless Guardsmen have been waiting far too long for their promotions due to delays beyond their control. These undue delays negatively impact the retention, morale and military careers of thousands of service members. This important legislation would provide officers back-pay and time in grade, as well as require the Army and Air Force to thoroughly review the National Guard officer promotions process and recommend efficiencies to Congress.
Passing the National Guard Promotion Accountability Act would ensure Guardsmen are not paying the price for bureaucratic delays and antiquated processes. Thank you, as always, for your continued support of our Armed Forces.
