WASHINGTON– Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement after the House agreed to the Conference Report to accompany H.R. 2810, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for FY18:
“Today, the House continues to provide for the common defense of our nation. This bipartisan legislation secures our troops the largest pay raise in eight years, expands the Armed Forces to counter the growing threats worldwide, and implements new oversight tools to streamline bureaucracy and allow the Pentagon to make better business decisions. Overall, this bill restores readiness, resources, and reform to our fighting forces. I have absolute confidence in the leadership at the Pentagon and their ability to drive preparedness with these resources, and I stand proud in joining both chambers to send this NDAA to the desk of President Trump.”
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.
