Upton Statement on NDAA Becoming Law
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement after President Trump signed the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law:
“America faces grave threats from terrorist organizations and rogue nations alike. This is why it’s vitally important we support this bipartisan legislation that provides for our common defense as outlined in the U.S. Constitution. This year’s NDAA also boosts investment in our military cybersecurity capabilities which will help our Battle Creek Cyber Command. It also provides the largest pay raise for our troops in eight years. I am proud to support this bipartisan legislation that will boost our national security, modernize our military, and help make our country more safe and secure.”
NOTE: The NDAA enjoys overwhelming bipartisan support. The House vote to go to Conference was 344 to 81 and the Senate vote was 89 to 8.
