Defense Bill Passes with Pfluger Amendments
WASHINGTON, DC – Thursday, Congressman August Pfluger (TX-11) released a statement after voting to pass H.R. 7900, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2023:
“As a former fighter pilot, I can say that there is nothing Congress works on that is more important than providing for our national defense. I am proud that this bill fully funds our military, counters the Chinese Communist Party, and provides a much-needed 4.6% pay increase for our troops.
“It includes several amendments that I offered to support our allies abroad, counter Russia’s malign activities, and help to gain a better understanding of the rising cancer rates among fighter pilots and aircrews. This bill is a strong first step. There is more work to be done on improving it, and I look forward to closely shepherding it through the legislative process. I will always support our military.”
