UPDATE: White House objects to provision in Senate version of NDAA for fiscal 2014 | Pacific Daily News | guampdn.com

The Obama administration opposes a provision in a Senate bill that seeks to delay the transfer of 5,000 U.S. Marines from Okinawa, Japan, to Guam.

The White House said in a statement it “strongly objects to the limitations imposed by” a section of the National Defense Authorization Act, a bill aimed at setting Pentagon policy for fiscal 2014.

The Senate is debating the bill, sponsored by Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., and could pass it this week or soon thereafter. The administration’s objections to this section and a host of other provisions could throw a wrench into that schedule.
