As in prior years, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 contains a variety of provision setting U.S. Department of Defense priorities for energy, environmental, and natural resource issues. These include measures that touch on climate change and infrastructure investment, and that thus represent some degree of consensus on these often politicized topics.
