ICYMI: Womack Addresses FY17 Defense Appropriations on House Floor
On Wednesday, March 8, 2017, in a speech given on the House Floor, Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) spoke in support of H.R. 1301, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2017. H.R. 1301 was subsequently passed by the House by a vote of 371-48. The bill provides funding for the Department of Defense (DOD) for military activities for the remainder of fiscal year (FY) 2017.
“Mr. Speaker, not only does this bill rebuild readiness by giving our troops the equipment they need, but it also reverses Obama-era cuts to developing defense platforms, stops troop drawdowns, and perhaps most importantly, gives our warfighters a much-deserved pay raise.
Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.
