Westerman Statement on Passage of FY2019 NDAA
WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Thursday (May 24) upon passage of the FY2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA):
"The world is a dangerous place and threats abound," Westerman said. "That is why our nation needs a strong military prepared to defend the United States against all enemies. For this reason, I voted for the FY2019 National Defense Authorization Act. It funds our national defense at higher levels in order for the military to adapt to 21st Century warfare. This legislation also authorizes the largest pay raise for the armed forces in nearly a decade. I am proud to support our military and to have voted for the NDAA."
