WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 14, 2017) – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today released the following statement after the House passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018 (H.R. 2810). An annual piece of legislation, the NDAA provides the readiness, resources, and reforms needed to strengthen the U.S. military.
“The National Defense Authorization Act provides needed resources to rebuild our military so that Americans can be confident in their security and have the peace of mind knowing they are safe and free,” said McMorris Rodgers. “The NDAA will modernize our military equipment, restore our military readiness, and provide a much-deserved pay raise to our troops, like those who serve at Fairchild Air Force Base in Spokane, Washington.”
Note: At a House Republican Leadership press conference on Wednesday, Rep. McMorris Rodgers said, “Fundamental to keeping this country safe is ensuring that our military men and women have the resource that they need.” Watch the full remarks here.
