American women could be required to register for the military draft as soon as next yea. An amendment to a defense policy bill was passed by a House of Representatives committee on Thursday, and was supported by some key members of the Senate. The House Armed Services Committee voted 32-30 to pass an amendment to the $602 billion National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, that would require women aged to register for the selective service, once all combat roles are open to women. Republican Representative Duncan Hunter is a former Marine who does not want women drafted and opposes their inclusion in special operations or infantry units. According to Reuters, he said he introduced the amendment to start a discussion. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/atNzNvt_huM/us-usa-defense-women-idUSKCN0XP31F http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
