Keep in mind, this is still draft legislation; however, the 2018 NDAA has the following interesting sections in it.

Sec. 502. Authority of promotion boards to recommend officers of particular merit be placed at the top of the promotion list.
Sec. 510A. Authority for officers to opt-out of promotion board consideration.

Oh yeah, and there's a lot of cyber stuff in there too. I will admit, I did not read most of these sections, just did a little Ctrl-F magic bug figured it might be interesting to throw these up. Who cares about cyber anyway, right? :D
