Marchant Votes to Pass the National Defense Authorization Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kenny Marchant (R-TX-24), released the following statement after the House passed the National Defense Authorization Act:

“Passing the NDAA is an important step to ensure our military is prepared to defend our country and citizens at home and abroad,” said Marchant. “These heroes put their lives on the line every day and will finally receive a pay raise they deserve, we must support them without hesitation.”

“Today I voted to prepare our military for any obstacle or adversary. Military readiness is vital and we can’t put our troops in dangerous situations without the proper tools to succeed. The NDAA will undo years of under-preparedness and enable our military to properly plan for the future without constraints. While ISIS’s presence has declined, now is not the time to let down our guard. This bill will deter the threats from Russia, North Korea and Iran and make it clear that the United States is combat ready. The time is now to rebuild our military and bolster our defenses. I look forward to this bill becoming law.”
