Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, released a statement applauding the House passage of the Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24) National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
“The National Defense Authorization Act has been a critical part of our national security for over 60 years. The NDAA provides our warfighters with the resources and authorities they need to provide for the defense of our nation. This legislation is vital as our nation is faced with unprecedented threats from our adversaries.
“It is only because of the selflessness of the brave men and women who serve in our armed forces that our nation remains free – the FY24 NDAA includes strong provisions that support our servicemembers and their families
“The threat we face from China is the most pressing national security threat we’ve faced in decades – the FY24 NDAA is laser-focused on countering China. The FY24 NDAA protects our homeland from threats by investing in a stronger missile defense and modernizing our nuclear deterrent. The legislation also boosts innovation and revitalizes the industrial base to ensure they can deliver the systems we need to prevail in any conflict.
“The FY24 NDAA also recognizes the critical role Alabama plays in our national defense and strengthens that role for years to come.
“Our adversaries will only be deterred by strength. The FY24 NDAA sends a stern message to our adversaries by bolstering our nation’s defense.”
