President Donald Trump will sign the fiscal year 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, a package key to the Savannah River Site, in December, according to U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson. The longtime South Carolina Republican mentioned the timeframe during a Tuesday night debate against his Democratic challenger, Adair Ford Boroughs, while answering a broader question about Fort Jackson, near Columbia, and military living conditions. Versions of the latest spending-and-policy bundle, seen as must-pass legislation, address plutonium pit production and the tritium facilities at the Savannah River Site, among other nuclear weapon, military and Energy Department endeavors across the country. The Energy Department oversees the Savannah River Site, the 310-square-mile reserve south of Aiken and near New Ellenton.
