Working to Support of Our Common Defense

Last week, Congress made significant progress on critical legislation that supports our common defense and ensures protection of U.S. interests around the world. While much work remains in the days and weeks ahead, I am proud that lawmakers in both chambers are one step closer to completing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the sixtieth year in a row.

As you might know, passage of the NDAA is important because it authorizes vital funding for U.S. military personnel, readiness and operations. This significant piece of legislation is traditionally a bipartisan effort in Congress, supporting the brave men and women who make every mission possible. While differences will need to be worked out soon, I am encouraged that both the House and Senate advanced bipartisan versions of the NDAA in their respective chambers last week.
