Final Version of the National Defense Authorization Act Passes the House
Washington, D.C. – Today, the final version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) passed the House of Representatives, with Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) serving as a conferee. The bill rebuilds our military through equipment modernization and improves readiness. It also reforms the way that the Pentagon does business and gives them the tools they need to make better, more responsible decisions.
“After years of cuts, we are finally beginning to rebuild and provide more for our national defense,” Stewart said. “We have too many planes grounded, troops untrained, and ships out of service. The NDAA address essential readiness recovery concerns that will provide our armed forces with the resources they need to keep our homeland safe. With this bill becoming a law, we are putting Americans’ safety and security first.”
