McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023. OPM is amending its regulations to reflect that the expanded eligibility criteria for any spouse married to an active-duty military member has been extended through December 31, 2028, and to remove agency reporting requirements established under Pub.
