Hirono Proposes National Guard Leadership Act

U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono has introduced the National Guard Leadership Act, legislation to provide the chief of the National Guard Bureau “with greater input” into the selection of senior leadership for the Army National Guard and Air National Guard.

According to Hirono’s office, the NGB’s internal recommendation process “is fluid and not governed by law or regulation. As a result, the input of the Chief of the NGB may or may not be sought.”
